Yes it's different. Again forum is important but it's completely secondary 
thing to what product (FreeBSD that case) offers.

I too consider forum not very good, and i opted to create fully-moderated 
version that will strictly be moderated to keep topics only related 

- FreeBSD base system
- ports as subsystem but not ported programs, as these programs have their 
own forums.

This will solve all problems from both point of views.

For example it would eliminate advertise/sponsoring offer and my response 
to this. and millions other problems.

Of course unmoderated mailing list should be left as is.

I swear i will not use it that case, cause it will not make any use of it 
for me.

And ALL will be happy.

Back to FreeBSD, i use it because it's (for me) best unix system available 
in the world, closest to what unix should be.
And i do need unix system.

Forum quality is secondary thing.
