Howdy!  I'm Josh Berkus, I'm also on the Core Team for PostgreSQL, and I 
wanted to give some closure on your issue before you quit with a bad taste in 
your mouth.

Your posting hit a sore point in the collective PostgreSQL community, so you 
got a strong reaction from several people on the list -- probably out of 
proportion to your posting.  

Or, to put it another way, you posted something intended to offend people out 
of your frustration, and got a very offended reaction back.

I think you recognize, now, that this list cannot help you under those 

A significant portion of my income derives from clients who need tuning help 
under NDA.  If, however, you don't need any capabilites that PostgreSQL has 
which MySQL doesn't, hiring a consultant would not be money well spent.

No arguments there ... wish I didn't have to work :-(
