This "minimum impact" has included:

 * Global notices asking for personal donations to pay for your car
 * Making #openprojects moderated so that only "approved" people can 
   speak, effectively squelching both dissent and a way for you to hear
   what people think.
 * Banning, de-linking, or removing people and/or channels whose
   members even ASK whether you are doing the right thing.

In my mind, this is not minimum impact.  More of a hailstorm.

Then why not just let us make it rather than continuing to stretch the truth
and try to prevent us from leaving?  Perhaps the loss of Debian would hurt
your much-lauded usage statistics to the point where it is no longer
justifiable to have such a high budget?
