To be clear, by saying that anything outside of apache.org is not
official anyway, I didn't necessarily mean you should delete that
page.

What I meant is that the Apache Flex project doesn't really care about
who grabs the various apacheflex, ___Apache:_Flex$, apache.flex and
other similar names around the web.

Any official communications from this project will come from one of
our apache.org channels (this list, blogs.apache.org/flex,
incubator.apache.org/flex/, etc.).

If people communicate about Apache Flex on other channels in a way
that helps this project, that's very cool.

If people say silly things about Apache Flex on other channels, we'll
point to [2] to indicate that we have nothing to do with it.

If people misuse trademarks related to Apache Flex [1], we will nicely
ask them to stop and escalate if they don't.

So, thanks for whoever grabs such names to help this project, and if
it's for other reasons people are mostly wasting their time.
