how can we sit back and embrace halloween as a custom
where kids dress up as all form of Un Godly creature
with all companies promoting all kinds of costumes and
parents willing to allow their children to enjoy that
season and think it is ok but wrong for us to embrace
beastie as a logo for FreeBSD. There is nothing wrong
with freebsd just the way that persons wish to
intepret it. We need a new advertising staff and some
good PR people not a new logo
