It wasn't evasion: the question looked as stupid to me as the
name-calling in the message (or, say, misdescribing my views
and then trying to prevent reply).

"A Debian context" is still vague.  I believe some developers
have abused others because of differing socio-religious views.
Abuse is sadly common on some debian lists. TTBOMK to date,
Debian as a project has not discriminated against any one person
on such grounds, but has been inconsiderate.

I'm not up for a vote now. Can we get back on-topic, please?

Hope that explains,
