I am now officially Hitler – or so implies Matthew Garrett , Linux kernel developer: "The great thing about Debian is that, as a community, we are accepting of everyone interested, willing and able to contribute" WHAT IF HITLER WAS INTERESTED, WILLING AND ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE? EH? EH?

Backstory: I announced my intent to package Bernd und das Rätsel um Unteralterbach for Debian – a game that contains sexual abuse. Debian folks had a quite civil discussion about the game and its content. Some people on Twitter , however, were apparently outraged – not about the game, but that the Debian discussion did not degenerate into a flamewar.

Liz Henry identifies the situation as amusing : It's like watching rec.pets lose its cool in some 1991 flame war about whether to pull a rubber band out of your cat's butt .
