I found Peter's critical input very informative and I agree with much of
it.  I don't think his intentention was to antagonize anyone,.  The work
you and others have done is very important to the Postgesql community
and we all recognize that.  Please don't take messages like this too
personally - not all that long ago there was no advocacy site to be
critical of, and that alone is a major accomplishment!  That being said,
there will always be room for improvement and this type of feedback is
important for the success of the advocacy site.

Let me know if I can help.  If you are interested in addressing some of
Peter's points I have some free time this weekend to research and make
suggestions for possible textual revisions.
