I didn't have in mind anything quite so self-righteous or
self-serving, nor do I think the allusion to Martin Niemoeller's quote
is particularly apposite.  (If you do, then I do not envy you the
position in which you seem to find yourself.)  I just think that a
"pledge to killfile" Andrew would do more damage to Debian's
reputation for rational discourse than Andrew himself ever could.
