I have to say my unvoiced thoughts were the same as Ryan's. I was not at all
clear why a call for the community to help figure marketing stuff out would
be met by a request to take the discussion off list as though it was somehow
inappropriate for public discussion. It seemed like a very strange response.
Now reading the responses to Ryan's comments seem even more strange. I feel
like I am missing something because the responses to Ryan's comments seem on
the surface, inappropriate as well.
