That really sounded disingenuous.
It would probably be appropriate to point out that there are numerous
sources of professional support for PostgreSQL.
As someone who ran a consulting business for 25 years and has been on
both sides of the calls for assistance on recovery from database
problems (and currently not in that business, so I have no ax to grind
here), that post was inappropriate for the list. I don't think anyone
would fault you (or anyone else) for making a polite offer of
assistance off-list, as long as you quietly bow out if they're not
interested; but anybody who is a professional in this business should
know better than to post that to the list. There are several reasons,
and they should be obvious.
