What I can gather from this thread is that he, as a developer, might
possibly have the right to speak on behalf of FreeBSD in regards to a
sponsorship offer.  On the other hand, you, who are neither a
developer nor a core team member, do not.  Not only that, the
information is his reply is both polite and accurate where yours is
not.  From Boris's e-mail:

Your reply to that was:

And, of course, after rechecking the important bit from the original

It's obvious you misinterpreted it.  They ask for a short mentioning
**on the site somewhere** which is in no way, shape, or form the same
thing as on the main webpage.

In another reply in this thread you replied to someone saying:

You might want to go back and reread the original sponsorship offer
post.  It sounds like you are the one replying faster than you are
reading or understanding.
