I think it is a matter of deciding the purpose of the space. IMO .Org
should be all about community, not all about advertising for commercial
providers. That isn't to say we shouldn't help the people who help us
(obviously) but it is to say that a PUG should come before CMD, EDB or 
any other commercial entity listed.

That being said, we have a problem in that the front page is remarkably
cluttered. It is trying to tell people entirely too much all at once.
Something has to give if we are going to add PUGS. Training or Latest
News seems the most appropriate. 


Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
