Hi Ben and everybody,

I have not seen such statements on the Twitter and Facebook "Debian" accounts,
nor on the default page of Iceweasel (where Google is the default search
engine), nor in the package description of libbusiness-paypal-api-perl, etc.  I
could not find the source code of clickandpledge, which is used to collect
donations for Debconf.

Are there examples where this policy of frontal advocacy is applied ?  I do not
want to be the only one to have a behaviour that I perceive as hostile to the

What I would prefer to do, for instance, would be to point at Debian accounts
holding similar mirrors on other providers.  Are there such accounts somewhere ?
