Then you would be well advised to keep pie-hole shut.  Doing otherwise,
as Lincoln put it, "removes all doubt."

Does it even *occur* to you that some people use FreeBSD in _business_
operations?  Business (or even government) operations which just might 
have to comply with _laws_ that limit them to using resources that have
been "certified" as doing what the law requires such tools do?

C.P. has made it clear that she _is_ in am environment where compliance
with government edicts on the subject of security _is_ an operational
requirement.  Including the mandatory use of 'certified' solutions for
particcular issues.  In her environment, geli could be used 'in addition
to' a mandatory, "certified" solution, but *NOT* 'by itself' as a means
of dealing with that mandatory requirement -- because it is *not* and
approved and 'certified' means of satisfying that requirement.

Whether or not you agree with, or even _understand_, the nature of the 
requirement is immaterial, and irrelevant to C.P.'s situation.

She _does_ have to deal with those requirements, which you do not -- your
lack of comprension of that =fact= not withstaning.
