There is no doubt this is FUD. I was hoping to help combat it.

And now I have found that you are already looking at this! Excellent!
I'm a bit busy with creating the best cert possible right now but I
would encourage people out there to step up and help to create this. I
think that such a directory (if kept reasonably up to date) would be an
excellent way to create more value for the holders of the certs and give
everyone a way to counter the FUD of "no one to support Linux"! Simply
pointing an employer or manager to the list at lpi.org would go a long
way in evangelizing Linux and LPI!

Here is someone's chance to fight back and contribute to the community.
Any takers?
