To be honest, the way you approached it, I'd be insulted too.
Accusing someone of something, i.e. 'he is misappropriating the name
"OpenPGP.org"', only has them put up their defenses. You can only
request that GPG be added and the request will either by accepted

Personally, I don't think it matters. I use GPG along side PGP and
have never been to www.openpgp.org. I think that most people who
would have an interest in GPG have many other ways to find out
about it. It's a non-issue in my book. I'd put it on the "It would be
nice to see this" list.
