I don't think (at least I am not) questioning the amount of effort that
is put in to PWN. However the arguments here are not about PWN, they
are about the representation of our project and how it is presented to
our users. The name of this project is PostgreSQL and we should be
using the official name.

It could be just as easily said that it is particularly offensive
that someone would so easily discount the official name of the project
that so many of our contributors put our time into at no cost.
