> … many of them are using FreeBSD.

<http://uptime.netcraft.com/perf/reports/Hosters> redirects to 
<https://uptime.netcraft.com/perf/reports/Hosters> where, more accurately, only
one site uses FreeBSD. With all due respect, this is not good advocacy. 

The second link
<https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/#introduction-nutshell-users> no
longer leads to a list of sites using FreeBSD. 

I reckon:

b) add a point with reference to
<https://freebsdfoundation.org/freebsd-project/what-is-freebsd/>, where we have
(amongst other things): 

> Who is Using FreeBSD?

– I'll send an e-mail to the Foundation, for their page to more accurately
refer to
(instead of outdated


Better, IMHO: remove both bullet points, then have #_sites_using_freebsd anchor
to a simple sentence that includes the link to the Foundation page. 

(Foundation staff are well-placed to co-ordinate advocacy activities. Give
yourselves one less area to maintain at the FreeBSD web site.)
