Provided they're motivated by technical merit rather than "this group
has the One True Way" fanaticism, I have no problem with such messages.
(Perhaps the FreeBSD way is in fact the right way on this point. I
don't know enough about it to comment even if I were competent to
comment on it, which do not think I am.)
And, of course, provided that such messages aren't ubiquitous to the
point of being annoying in their own right. Perhaps you found this
message annoying in its own right - clearly you did, from what you
wrote - but since its author hasn't written enough to tech-kern to even
make it onto my radar as a regular contributor (much less as a FreeBSD
apologist), I think a more moderate response would be in order.
