-user is described as "Community assistance and support for Debian
users.", so it looks like a user has carte blanche to post what he
wants; it depends what is meant by "Debian users". I am a Debian user
and am having problems with my mobile phone. Should I seek help here?

appreciate that Debian-based questions are the practical focus on
this list and do not abuse its purpose, as spammers do.
