don't propagate a chain letter through a list group. not cool.
we all signed up to exchange information about debian and its
related software. rudness of the first degree, to use that
forum to broadcast unrelated junk.

i don't own the newsgroup. nobody really does -- it's a community of folk
who want to share info regarding debian.

if you insist on stumping for your pet projects, please have the decorum
to send it directly to people you know, who aren't likely to be offended
by your efforts.

i can't say i speak for everybody, but i can say with certainty
that *I* do not like them, want them, appreciate them, or
tolerate them. i don't know of anyone (over the age of 13)
who even thinks they are entertaining.

unless it's a chain-letter spoof, that's well executed.
but even then, it would not belong on this list.

people on a newsgroup have a lot of control over the messages
they receive, and several of the posts that followed your
message indicated that you're in their killfile. that means
they AUTOMATICALLY delete any messages coming from you.
so if you're asking for help, you won't get it, because you
already encouraged them to tune you out.

debian-user is for debian information exchange. think, THEN act.

self-reference, n: see self-reference.
