FreeBSD On Tuesday, code-analysis software maker Coverity announced that its automated bug finding tool had analyzed the community-built operating system FreeBSD and flagged 306 potential software flaws, or about one issue for every 4,000 lines of code. The low number of flaws found by the system underscores that FreeBSD's manual auditing by project members has reduced the vulnerabilities in the operating system, said Seth Hallem, CEO of Coverity.

BSD is not copylefted, therefore freedom zero is not guaranteed. Don't use it!

From the GNU website, freedom 0 is defined as:

"The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0)."

Are you sure you know what you're talking about? Further, I would argue the BSD licence offers a different set of freedoms, which it seems you disagree with. Sorry, but please don't spread FUD!
