Although, reconsidering: If I just installed Debian and I had trouble, 
and I was a newbie, I would google 'Debian support'

Where this: https://www.debian.org/support states:

"For user support in English, please contact the debian-user mailing
list." which points to https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/ where it
implicitly states that you should subscribe to get support.

who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the 
oppressing." --- Malcolm X
