You expect from people to take us seriously, but you have unbelievable
low opinion of other professions. "Some marketing experts are being
called". I think that is direct and very, very, very low attack on
marketing profession. Try to take their point of view, and in the best
case they'll look at us as kids frightened for their toy, if they want
to keep their pride. And people do want that, no matter what their
profession is.

Your self defense just turned on, and you are not acting constructive.
Please cool down, think about it. I wrote many technical newspaper
articles, but I didn't put single one heading on them. That certainly
doesn't mean that I wasn't the author.
