I take exception to being called a lier. Please either explain which of
my above statements is false or apologise.

I agree that he has made those statements - and those statements may
even be true. When asked to provide details of the bugs or references
to those problems, he has refused. Random, unsubstantiated claims are
hardly evidence of anything.
I have checked back through this thread and the provided descriptions
of the problems that he believes affect him are (to quote him)
"gmirror failures, 3ware raid driver timeouts, bge0 problems". Note
that he hasn't done any testing to verify that these problems actually
affect his hardware environment. When asked to, he refused.
Likewise, he describes his systems as (again, quoting him) "Rackable
systems with 3ware controllers". (I note that in another post, you
complain about a problem you are having - though you are able to
provide details of both the problem and your hardware/software
To summarise, so far the OP has made a series of unsubstantianted
claims about vaguely defined problems on vaguely defined hardware.
When asked for more details, he has refused. Exactly what do you
expect the FreeBSD developers to do?

In the absence of any details about the problems he believes he has,
such an offer is meaningless. Reading his actual posting, it reads
more like "who would like to do my QA/validation for me and fix any
bugs they find for free". In general, the underlying problem is lack
of developer resources, rather than lack of hardware.
>What is the purpose of the insults and denigration?
I fail to see where I have insulted or denigrated anyone. OTOH, your
first words to me were an insult.
Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
