>> This email hit the NYC chapter list today and we discussed it through the board list earlier. I feel this is an abuse of the OWASP brand and vendor neutrality rules to some degree, but other board members politely disagreed with me. That's fair.

>> Can you please chime in here? Am I off-base or do you feel this is OWASP brand or vendor neutrality abuse?
>> 
>> I know this is a specific example, but I think it's very important to the organization. So far, I feel like I stand alone when complaining about these situations and I'd appreciate your feedback. If you have the time, please click deeper into the email below and investigate a bit.
