Blatant irresponsibility, hmmm ...

Perhaps Debian should follow the example of OpenBSD, and not start
possibly dangerous services by default.  It's really easy to install 
Debian and have all kinds of services running immediately.  I doubt
everyone who is running servers on Debain (by choosing to do so during 
the 'oh so easy' installation) really knows what they're doing.
