Why are so many FreeBSD haters on this list? (Troll bait)

It seems like there are more then normal (than in years past) people on the
-questions@ list that for whatever reason just *HATE* FreeBSD for technical
and non-technical reasons.    If you hate FreeBSD so much why are you on
this list and why do you use FreeBSD?  I suspect in many cases they use
FreeBSD because it is more stable then their favorite OS (linux).  Hint:
that stability is in many cases due to the very reasons you hate FreeBSD
(conservative adoption of features for example, not using GPL as much as
possible, so called "out-dated" features and lack of "modern" hardware
support -- the last two are either subjective or just out right incorrect).

So why don't you stop attempting to change the things that made FreeBSD
such a great OS and accept its users' reasons for not using/liking Linux.
The development, business model and such of FreeBSD are designed to not
have or at least mitigate most of the reasons that Linux leaves a bad taste
in our mouths.
