To the point, if you are willing to accept that there are companies
other than CMD which could be reasonably described as "A PostgreSQL
Company" then CMD calling themselves "The PostgreSQL Company" doesn't
seem all that reasonable.

waste the attention of a potential client with what is clearly
marketing speak.
