In other words, your answer seems to be:

  "We don't want users who like FreeBSD, but want to use it on a laptop.
  FreeBSD should never be used on a laptop."

I'd say I can safely ignore you, knowing that's your attitude, if it
weren't for the fact that a lot of other people won't know that down the
line, and you may permanently damage the FreeBSD project by chasing off
potential contributors.

Is there any way I can get you to stop being such a contentious trojan
horse of an enemy to the FreeBSD project?

They always say that when life gives you lemons you should make lemonade. 
I always wonder -- isn't the lemonade going to suck if life doesn't give
you any sugar?
