Is this something we (as consumers of FreeBSD) need to be aware of?

Your paranoia is working overtime now.

Oh, poor Chad. His feelings are hurt.

Chad, for some reason that totally escapes me at the moment, you feel
as if you are important enough for me to really care what you think.
News flash -- you aren't. I think of you as nothing more than an
incorrigible bore with an inflated ego. Your attempts to portray
yourself as an cognoscente while your persecution complex has pervaded
numerous posts you have responded to has become laughable. Perhaps you
are experiencing hypnagogic hallucinations. You really should consult
an expert in the field although I fear that you would be recalcitrant to
the idea.

It must be sad going through life feeling that everyone is casting
aspersions and heaping maledictions upon you. It is really sad.

Personally, I would much rather have a discussion with Poly. I respect
him, although I don't often agree with him. At least he discusses facts
and doesn't spend his time trying to defend himself against non existent

If you want to reply back with actual facts pertinent to the subject of
this post, fine. Otherwise you are only wasting your time since I will
not play your sad "woe is me" game.
