This list is full of nice people asking for help and even more nice 
people giving it.  That is the norm.

Problems arise when people who are new to Debian and Linux begin 
demanding changes instead of asking for help.

Alan also had something to say about wannabe programmers.  They mean

than opinion.

Go take your passion and apply it towards finishing your Debian install.  
Close mozilla mail and open a bash prompt.
