I didn't notice anyone displaying arrogance or unwillingness to
cooperate. What I see is someone completely misunderstanding
what they were doing and then trying to blame someone else for
their own mistakes.
Further, it is not possible for "someone at FreeBSD" to remove your
messages from existance because no-one "at FreeBSD" has any determinate
control over where the messages are distributed or stored or archived or
made available over the net. It is not a finite thing. If you will
take the time to understand what has been told to you, you will be much
enlightened and maybe it will help you in avoiding mistakes in the future.
Please don't continue to maintain your ignorance and use it to
shift blame to others. It will just make things more difficult
for yourself and compromise your own credibility.
