As someone listed on the page you have a vested interest in making the list
as short as possible.  That means more potential customers clicking on 
*your* link.  If you do not believe that this is a conflict of interest, then
you should at least be aware that others participating in the discussion 
could see it as one.

Agreed, except that we're not talking about reality, we're talking about 
marketing.  The best consultants are not necessarily the ones who advertise
for a particular distro.
