The obfuscation continues! Let's not get caught up in the actual problems I'm
trying to put on the table. Let's stay focused on the fact that discussing
mistakes and the efforts to correct them makes you persona non grata.
Silence dissent! The status quo is dandy! Shut up and be "nice"!

God forbid that we should discuss the failings of our organizational
infrastructure publicly. Debian must carefully guard SPI's public image by
carefully concealing its inability to do basic bookkeeping. Of course, we
have this whole notion of transparency and "not hiding problems", but those
feel-good notions are only skin deep. When it comes to *real* mistakes we
must carefully keep them out of google, out of public lists and hidden from
view. I know that's what I signed up for.
