I can't spent my precious time to explain again and again facts.
We agree to disagree as to what actually are the facts
It's easy and I just had to pick one lib from testing

Regarding security, LMDE is really secure.
I agree! With respect to the typical daily deluge of security patches that appear in Linux land, I doubt most users are affected by 98% of them. Most of these security patches are related to unique, specific, and contrived use cases and only occasionally apply to all users. That said, there is a feeling by all users that they want all security patches anyway because most users are not skilled or equipped to decide whether these security flaws will affect them. There is peace of mind just to install the patches as soon as available. People use Linux systems because of the many claims about good security.
I use another distro daily and through the years I have observed that security patches don't appear 12 minutes after the announcement. There is always a period of a few days before patches appear, often longer when the security bug is unique or obscure because the threat level is low. Sometimes a patch does not appear at all because the bug affects only certain versions of a package. Yet, there is nonetheless a quiet assurance that patches are always forthcoming. I fully appreciate and understand the need for the developers to pause and take a break after releasing Mint 17, yet the general pulse in this thread with respect to security patches is the patches are not forthcoming.
As I mentioned, security patches seldom or rarely affect usability. These kinds of patches should be automated directly into the Mint update queues, including LMDE. Computers perform automated tasks quite well and I think this is one reason users are a little impatient with respect to security patches.
then LMDE is not for you. And Debian TESTING is not either!
Debian Testing is well known for being stable. Yes, occasional regressions occur but overall, quite stable. And most users confident in their computer skills who decide to use LMDE are sufficiently skilled to address those occasional regressions. The original reason for the Update Packs is simply the exhausting daily effort required to keep pace with Debian Testing. The Mint developers could return to that original plan but then the name of Mint likely would suffer a bit with respect to stability. The developers have chosen stability as a priority. Hence the controlled effort to push Debian Testing updates through Update Packs.
That said, if Update Packs were on a fixed schedule there would always be a knowable target. That is not the case now. LMDE users get the feeling of being a mushroom --- always in the dark. Since all Linux distros are based on a sense of community, this kind of policy does not lend well to a feeling of belonging. LMDE users are left to feel like black sheep.
A fixed and knowable schedule also would lend well to less breakage because the amount of updates would be smaller, more bite size. Updates at only once or twice per year will always be massive and almost assured to cause breakage somewhere.
Of course there are other options. There are other distros based on Debian Testing. Users do not have to stick with LMDE. The developers could drop support for LMDE. The whole point to this thread, I think, is LMDE users do not feel like they belong to any community. If nothing else, simply automating the security patch queue would quash some of the debate.
