While it's true anyone can flame anybody - we in the channel do have
some easy things to follow before asking. In the topic it refers to
seeking the Handbook, /usr/ports/updating & /usr/src/updating.

Many users after reading such topics generally find that it's not much
to ask that they do a few things on ones own. I have been in that
channel for over a year, and while it's certainly try that does and can
happen - it's generally warranted.

Just my point of view. And as I mentioned, we ARE working to correct the
image that is mentioned on the FBSD site.

So please - don't presumably shut it down when you may not have been
there in some time.
