Indeed I agree with you that there is probably nothing I could search
for that would result in a pointer to freebsd.org and be personally
incriminating to me with the laws as they currently stand in the United
States of America, but we can not say that is the same for people in
other places.  I believe there are places in the world where
software freedom is frowned upon.

I also know from some of my own political activities in support of a
free internet and free software that the United States of America is
very close to outlawing Free Software in the name of the corporations
in who's pockets our government currently sits.

The current UEFI-Secure-Boot debacle is heading us down that path very
quickly.  It is no longer safe to believe "I am from the government and
I am here to help", nor is it safe to believe "Do no harm" from a
multinational corporation of immense size.
