Debian is useable by anyoen. Let's not go down that
road or you'll have everyone trying to decide who is
allowed to use what software for what purpose and since
practically everyone hates *someone*, the whole endeavour

The software is just there for all to use on an 
equal basis. Even an al Qaeda member can use debian... 
although I'd shoot them dead on sight if I met them in 
person. But that would have nothing to do with Debian or
Debian use or Debian policy or Debian anything.

That's why there are very wise rules in Debian and GPL
in general to make software freely available to *all*

Why don't we drop this thread and leave it to the 
list maintainer?
