Hey, man, don't you think this statistics is a bit stupid? It shows
only how many users
your statistics software has, not *BSD users count. And I bet you have
it installed by
default in PCBSD (and not others). So, what's the point?

Installation of the reporting script is a voluntary install, however  
pcbsd as an OS has elected to turn it on by default. Do you have a  
better way of gathering these advocacy stats?
