(who was spot-on with his assessment) and anyone else who sees this
thread as completely off-topic for -user.

Everyone can spam numerous mailing lists; they don't. Everyone can lie
and claim to be an attorney; they don't. Everyone can make an effort to
hide their identity; they don't. Everyone can resurrect a topic which
has received previous exposure on -user; they don't. Everyone can start
an email with a pompous "It has come to my attention...."; they don't.
Everyone can write a mail looking like they know what they are talking
about and inudate mailing lists about it; they don't.

Everyone can be inconsiderate, unthinking, self-centred, rude,
unthinking, foolish, uninformed or lacking in nouse when posting to
debian-user. The OP has managed all of these simultaneously.

Anyone can can put forward a proposition on -user. That does not mean it
needs to be taken as requiring a response. Trusting the OP as a person of
integrity requires a feat of the imagination. Some appear to possess it.

This mailing list thankfully spends most of its time trying to help
users. It suceeds in many, many ways. If this is on the left - put me
there rather than with the bonkers posters.
