Well, I can always except critism. The problem is that I don't need rude responses for something I thought would be something to share for your organization, a success story of FreeBSD. Only for people to call me lazy and say "Big Deal". If it's not a big deal, than say nothing. Maybe you should put someone in charge of answering emails who aren't cocky and smug, some responses were nice and at least supportive.

I still believe in FreeBSD and it's a great OS. It's the nix I started and learned with but I think your community is full of conceited, pompous asses, the reason I don't like to associate with IT people. I'd rather not give money to someone who has to insult me. If you go to a restaurant and you get a rude waiter, what do you do? I don't go back or give them a crap tip.

I get better tack out of forums where I'm asking for help on coding challenges than just simply offering a testimonial.

Dear Mr. Marshall:

I'm terribly sorry that our representatives in charge of answering emails have been rude to you. I've just fired the lot of them, particularly as we can't afford to keep then on anymore seeing as how your generous donations are now in jeopardy.

Moving forward I certainly hope that you evaluate your operating systems based on their technical merits and overall ROI, where I believe you will find that FreeBSD stands out, as it has for years, as a hard working operating system to support your Internet requirements at low cost.

I will ask, however, that in the future you constrain your e-mail to freebsd-questions to either questions or answers to them, so as to not inflame our more excitable representatives once we hire a new, much reduced, batch of them.
