That's the best argument I heard so far.

Life is complicated enough. If it will cause harm to the efforts of
other Fedora Ambassadors, then I want to avoid that by all means.

Fedora's identity separate from Red Hat is important. The fact we will
be in the same booth as Red Hat should be enough of a connection as it

Therefore, I will remove the Red Hat logo from poster and the flyers.

Thanks, everyone, for keeping the discussion civil.
