Which questions the whole idea of "Who's using Boost".
Your goal should be to provide a testimonies of those who are *proud*
users of Boost - only then you can publish the list and call it "Boost
If you want to publish the info even *knowing* that this might not be
intended from the point of view of any not-so-proud user, then your list
stops to be a list of "success stories" anymore and becomes a nitpick
list, which can be titled "Boost shame stories".
Sorry, but I think you should slow down and reflect.
Just my 0.05 Euro, feel free to ignore.
