   issues with certain FreeBSD developers, and the path FreeBSD development
   has taken, the sort of trolling that is going on is damaging the wider
   interests of Open Source in general as well as the many end-users
   and many other developers who contribute to FreeBSD, and all the BSD's,
   including DragonFly are poorer for it.

I am not responsible, nor do I know who is. But the person who started the "Where is FreeBSD going?" thread had some valid points, and if it is a troll, it's the first one I've seen that is in fact accurate. Those of us still running FBSD waiting for DF to get to the point where we can go to our management and suggest a migration, well, we're not seriously considering 5.x for anything useful right now. The points made, although personal, are valid. I don't think you should be getting involved in censoring those over there, and I only hope that you, unlike -core, actually listen to the sysadmins and end users in the future before going off and doing something mad. :-)

I agree though, it may put you and DFBSD into a bad light with the way it has been done. There were better ways of doing it.
