If you knew that that is what Mr. Schweers called his kernel config file and 
had nothing to do with the coding of the FreeBSD developers would you 
apologise to them ? If so you should start now.

Mr. Schweers had the decency to censor his kernel name out for the mailing 
list which was the right thing to do as far as I am concerned. He may also 
call his kernel config file whatever he likes. Reminds me of the old one... 
What's red and hangs in a tree ? My stove. Why ? Because it's MY stove and I 
can do what I like with it !!

Maybe you should check your facts before you open your mouth and embarass
