It's probably a revelation to you but you do not have to poll
the entire community to find out if the majority of them don't
like something.  This is called "sampling"  The people who
have posted are a sample of the community.  The vast majority
of this sample don't like it.  Thus the majority of the community
doesen't like it.  (those who hold opinions one way or another,
that is, and the opinion holders are the only ones that matter
in this particular issue)


I am well aware of what sampling means, your argument if flawed, you may have the sample of the community that does not like it, the people who do like it may not find it important enough to post about. Quite frankly it is of no importance as the community were not the ones with a say about it, the FreeBSD management were and they did.
