Not from me. I was very much happy with Raspbian when I my Raspberry Pis 
were still in use.

On the other hand Debian felt like from the moment I started with it and 
I was happy to be able to return to it once it gained sufficient support 
for my current hardware.

As far as I'm concerned trying to diagnose problems on Raspbian would 
take significantly more time, because:

1. I don't know where/how much it diverges from pure Debian.

   (It's been years since I last used it)

2. I don't have the means to test my assumptions/advice.

   (I don't like to provide wrong advice, even though I know somebody 
   will correct it, literally within minutes [1])

It also doesn't help when posters don't provide the information being 
asked for (or mangle it). If they know so well what is or not relevant 
how come they can't they solve their own problems?

Given the above I believe my limited available time is just better spent 
helping people that are running something closer to pure Debian.
