The tone on that thread has been really respectful up until now; if
anyone does want to voice concern, please do maintain a very polite
tone. This is way too easy to get upset about (also, trigger warning on
the game and game description, it's pretty bad)

All the debian project members that I've read so far are either
undecided (due to not having played it, and waiting to evaluate if it
has any artistic merit) or against it.

I can think of a few people who'd likely support it's inclusion, but
this isn't the mainstream viewpoint. There's an ftpteam meeting about
this coming up, and there'll be an 'official' response.
