Given the hyperbole and intentionally misleading content of waay too
much of this thread, including its title, the only thing I find strange
is that anyone could take it seriously.

If you think that's strange you should check out the posts that
torpedo'd HardenedBSD's Reddit page.  Having seen this before in other
projects and knowing some of the sources you wouldn't be mislead by
following the money i.e., astroturf.  At least the FreeBSD project
doesn't utilize professional astroturfers advertising on sites like the
Philippines' Craigslist.  See also
