There is a misunderstanding here. I am neither a marketing guy nor a 
troll, I am a DBA who manages several Postgres installations and has a 
vested interest in the success of PostgreSQL. I devoted quite a bit of 
time to understanding and learning PostgreSQL which means that I do 
believe in its success. I was only asking about it.
