"Forgive me, but I didn't understand your first sentence. That might either be a problem caused by us speaking a common but foreign language, or - if you're a native speaker - me not understanding what you're trying to say."

Well, I did grow up on a reservation in the US, so some of my speech might have some localisms, but English is my first language.

So, I will restate my first sentence: Why didn't you submit the link http://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20130130081741 then put your opinion of the writer given his example as the first comment?

As to the rest, the questions in the article mention BSD because of his previous statements that others in this thread have linked to. He has stated those opinions strongly without prompting by making proposals.

Judging a whole OS by one guy's article is pretty poor. I assume you boycotted Linux over the "monkeys"[1] comment since that seems much worse than this one example came from the lead of the whole project?

Thanks a lot for the first part/explanation. The answer is nothing spectacular: Because it didn't came to my mind. When I stumbled upon that post I didn't submit it anywhere. I recalled that post when this 'OpenBSD' headline turned up.

Again, submitting 'So I think this isn't nice' never came to my mind and adding this here was (ignoring attributes like 'useless' etc) a spontaneous 'You know what I recently found?' kind of comment. This was blown way out of proportion by now. My bad.
