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.
When the government bureau's remedies do not match your
problem, you modify the problem, not the remedy.
