I now realize, however, it seems quite likely that you could benefit
from some talking with someone about things, as you seem quite angry:

Hm, I could have benefited from discussing what the meaning of 'marketing' actually is for Free software, especially now I read there is a fedora-marketing list. How does this fit in with the current project goals, is it a mild, budgetless advocacy concept or a gung-ho tattooed-on-the-forehead self flagellating squad of jihadis that raid corporate offices for re-education of the inhabitants, how that crosses over with RHEL / Redhat Desktop traditional marketing, what the metric is for 'success' on Fedora marketing, how it can even be measured given the inherent redistribution, etc.

I don't mind if you feel the need to form a defensive posture on being
told you posted a load of handwaving junk.

My original intention was not to put down you or the project, it was
merely to generate some discussion.
Seriously, best of luck; I have nothing against you and wish you well.

Yeah same to you.
