If they don't like my distribution method then they are free not to ask for it.  Nobody's making them ask for it.  I *CLEARLY* stated in my original e-mail who the intended target audience was.

My mailing list?  What mailing list?  My "catty response" was in DIRECT
response to yours.  You're the one that claims that there are hundreds
of document available that are just like mine.  Do all of the others
offer a complete "turnkey solution" including proxy, content filter, IM
filtering/logging, multi-node failover, SNMP support, and web management
of the firewall itself?  If so, please feel free to tell me.  Because I
never found out, which is why I created mine in the first place.

How is mine not free as in speech?
