Hey, Fully-Formed Mass Assive:

I can install an Extension to FireFox that will make it appears as ANY
BROWSER I TELL IT TO SAY IT IS. It is called UserAgent Switcher.

I can also tell "curl" to be anything I want it to be.

I can and have completely changed the nature of the TCP Stack, to
masquerade as a completely different OS.

Does this mean that they are dishonest? No, It means that when an
Internet Website (such as Chase Bank) only supports Windows and Internet
Explorer. I only use Linux and Firefox... what am I to do? Suffer? No, I
fix up my end so that the Website allows me to view what I need, so I
can do my banking.

Funny how FireFox works just fine in the "inside" site, except for the
explicit "advertisements" run using ActiveX. 

So, I guess you need to stop making everyone think you are a
Brillianto-Padlock Jin-Yew-Whine Sect-Curity Con-Slutant.

and to remove a real debian package is as simple as running this command
from the command prompt, as the root user:

        apt-get remove -y --purge $(dpkg -l | grep ^ii | cut -f3 -d\  )

(that is 2 spaces at the end after the \ and before the ).

Make sure you answer affirmative to everything it asks, don't answer
anything with a NO or break out, as it will stop doing what you just
told it to do. Mainly because you know what you are doing. It'll make
sure that the package gets removed.
