You understand wrongly. I don't really care about the FreeBSD site. I
genuinely think that Siegel+Gale have a substandard website. Take a
look at the Royal Academy  and Design Council sites he linked - it's not
in the same league.

So what are you saying?

- I'm automatically wrong (irrespective of the facts) because they're
  respected design agency and I'm a nobody
- You didn't understand what I wrote.=20
- you disagree with a specific point that you're not bothering to
  mention

I'm not a hater. I'm at most a mocker. In particular I find it amusing
that their own website fails to follow the vision that they advocate for
other peoples.
