	Please unsubscribe from debian-vote if you do not wish to hear
 the opinions of the candidates on politically charged issues as well
 as ordinary technical issues.  You certainly have not gained
 moderator rights on this mailing list; so please refrain from
 attempting to so.

	The question above does seem germane, since it refers to in
 passing to an incident that drowned the signal on a development list
 of the project with non-technical noise; hearing the candidates views
 on how these issues are to be resolved would show their modus
 operandi in handling similar incidents in the future.
