Promote the use of NetBSD using what ever channels are available.

I don't think you will find that is the prevailing view.

Good for you.  Though I _really_ really have to wonder about someone who
claims to be so concerned about such things yet they post their PO Box
address AND phone number in a document on the website in the domain that
their email appears to be coming from.  Whois says that a Robert
Bernstein is the registered owner of AND (where the mail appears to come from).  The phone
number does match the white pages listing for a Robert Bernstein in
Rhode Island and they do thoughtfully provide a street address too.  If
I could be arsed I could look up your place on google streetview - do us
a favour, next time the streetview car goes past, stand out the front
and wave... theres a good chap.

You may want to ponder this whilst folding your latest tin-foil hat.

Afraid it is good sir.
