Maybe I wasn't clear enough in my last message.  This mailing list is
for technical questions, not discussions.  To quote the rules to which
you agreed when you subscribed (see

  Rules of the road:

    * The topic of any posting should adhere to the basic charter of
      the list it is posted to, e.g. if the list is about technical
      issues then your posting should contain technical
      discussion. Ongoing irrelevant chatter or flaming only detracts
      from the value of the mailing list for everyone on it and will
      not be tolerated. For free-form discussion on no particular
      topic, the FreeBSD chat mailing list is freely available and
      should be used instead.

    * Personal attacks and profanity (in the context of an argument)
      are not allowed, and that includes users and developers
      alike. Gross breaches of netiquette, like excerpting or
      reposting private mail when permission to do so was not and
      would not be forthcoming, are frowned upon but not specifically
      enforced. However, there are also very few cases where such
      content would fit within the charter of a list and it would
      therefore probably rate a warning (or ban) on that basis alone.

Please don't discuss off-topic topics here.  Please stop now, not
after Yet Another Opinion.
