if you say i alter the facts just tell me about "lost opportunity" of 
sponsoring - did i prevent anyhow FreeBSD owners to talk to this 
"potential sponsor" to talk with him?

Maybe they even did. But it doesn't change my opinion about it's mail 
being something close to spam. that's all.

And many people's problem here is that they just can't accept other people 
right to show their opinion. If it's too different from their then it's 
important that thread is off-topic. If it's not - it's fine.

That's why i opted (and still do) for moderation. Lets eliminate ALL 
off-topic thread.

If not - then please accept every people right to present their opinion.
