I am opposed to "advocating PostgreSQL" in this manner (regardless 
of how effective it may or may not be). Promoting PostgreSQL ought 
to be centered on explaining why PostgreSQL is a good DBMS, not 
trash-talking the competition. We should have faith that our users 
are capable of evaluating their database options and choosing the 
one that suites their needs best (which may or may not be 
PostgreSQL; I think Josh's point that SQLLite / MySQL are adequate 
for many people is a good one).
