I've noticed a decline in the quality of 'technical' forum threads for years, I don't think it's just the FreeBSD forums - you have entitled "consumers" who expect a polished end product developed for FREE, which they believe has to "compete" somehow with other OS offerings. They like to lecture people with their pseudo technical babble, but are ultimately clueless and only masters of googling and copying and pasting. They often turn to trolling when challenged.

I see a lot of chat in forums, especially Linux forums, but nothing much in the way of any experience or knowledge - just people fishing for some dupe to do all the hard work for them or talk them through fixing their broken mess for them or lots of chat about how x is better than y. "Low signal to noise ratio", as it used to be called.
