oh yes. that's right, i forgot. the whole world revolves around you and we
should read your mind to save you any effort.

and i said at the time in response to yours or someone else's question -
look in the linux-kernel archives. i recall seeing benchmarks posted a
couple of years ago.
you make a huge fuss over one little off-the-cuff remark.
my point in my original message was NOT to say linux's networking code
was better than FreeBSD's. i don't personally give a damn whether it
is or it isn't. my point was to highlight the fact that FreeBSD bigots
still repeat claims which were disproven years ago. i.e. their position
is religious, not factual.

i think this list would be a lot more pleasant if you weren't such an
argumentative SOB. it seems there is hardly any thread that you don't
feel compelled to rudely, arrogantly(*) and irritatingly create some
annoying fucking argument over some pedantic trifle. your "contribution"
to the list is, apart from flames and other worthless crap, negligible.
in short, your attitude sucks and really gives me (and several other
people) the shits.
this is spelt out here in no uncertain terms because you seem incapable
of taking a hint - STOP PISSING PEOPLE OFF OVER TRIVIALITIES.
(*) justifiable arrogance is OK. however, there is little justification for
arrogance in your particular case.
DO NOT BOTHER REPLYING.
Your addresses have been uncommented from my procmail shit-list again.
