Allen is the major current contributor to MacBSD. The problem is that
you burst on to the mailing list sounding as if you *deserved* to get
tech support for free. Remember that Allen gets NO money for his
efforts, and it seems he also gets little praise. I think you should
be happy he had enough time and motivation to answer as much as he
did. Don't ever forget that everyone on this list is is a volunteer;
instead of complaining, maybe you could write a better FAQ.
I think you owe Allen an apology.
