Yes, Barracuda is screwed up and very badly managed.  Always has been 
(although it's gotten worse since they first rolled out), probably 
always will.

Of the appliances, Ironport seems to be not-too-bad on the technical 
"does it work" side, and seems to scale much better, too. 
Personally, I don't like any kind of appliance for this role, but if 
you have to have an appliance, Ironport seems like it would be a much 
better choice than Barracuda.

IMO, people who use Barracuda get what they deserve.
