Thanks. I don't know if anyone cares my opinion, but as a newcomer to the community, my feedback is that it is not needed. At best it confuses a newbie and makes him feel like an outsider. At worst it just looks totally unprofessional, like here: http://www.planetcassandra.org/blog/post/calling-all-apache-cassandra-speakers
it is hard to form a good opinion of Cassandra project when it is being discussed like that.
Hopefully this is helpful constructive criticism and not just useless flamebait or trollbait.
