I'm going to say this just once: *YOU* are here to learn how the ASF
works. *I* am trying to help you understand the rules and am doing my
best to explain them and the reasons for them. Calling the *volunteer*
effort I'm putting into this "nitpicking" is less than polite. Telling
me to write content for GridGain's site in my free time is tastless, to
put it mildly.

You seem to assume that our trademark policies are just an impediment
that must be removed with minimal effort, and that vendor neutrality is
just a marketing buzzword, despite my explaining time and again why
that's not the case.

Remind me, why do you think It's a good idea that I spend several hours
a week helping a podling, just to be insulted in public by the likes of you?
