Yes. And? His comments with regard to Postfix are incorrect (i.e. wrong) and
seriously out of date.

Have you read this:

http://www.sigmasoft.com/~openbsd/archive/openbsd-ports/200108/msg00461.html

It got bad enough that OpenBSD dropped his software from _ports_.

Plus most of his software stagnates quite quickly, and he doesn't officially
accept contributions, so you end up missing basic functionality that is
addressed by third party (unaudited typically) patches.

Anyways, I think that's enough of this.
