Er, no. debian-user has seen questions like the original poster's for a
long, long time, years before what appears to be the current bot made
its appearance. I'd suggest applying Occam's razor: the simplest
explanation is that the poster is confused about what Debian is,
therefore that explanation should be believed unless you have good
evidence to the contrary.

None of the previous posts you're referring to even mentioned Debian at
