Beyond the obvious trademark mixing issues already brought up. I would
need to have an understanding of how RHM goes about populating content
Is it
(a) RHM editors have to do heavy cultivating of original content by
reaching into the RH corporate communication channels or corporate
water-cooler backchannels to persuade RH employees to write content or
in some way contract people to submit article?

or is it
(b)Submissions come in organicly for editorial review and the editors
essentially pick and mold articles from the que?

If its (a) we'll need to have discussion about how a public, volunteer
editorial board would be able to do content cultivation without
reaching for RH corporate channels to solicit people for content.
