Debian, as a project and as a community, is very open. That means both good and bad things are being discussed, out in the open. I think it's counter-productive to ask people not to talk about negative issues publicly.

Now, I agree with you that the tone of the message is a bit too harsh - the question whether Debian is dying is too much of an exaggeration. But I would not go so far as to call it a disaster.

I think that the best thing we can to is do a good job on the debian- publicity mailing list, so we get more "good" press coverage to offset the (inevitable) bad coverage.
