Uh, not to be rude, but what the hell are you talking about?  I don't
remember anyone talking about changing the logo.  Except the occasional
fundy trying to throw the idea into the list every couple months using
every tone from appeasement to outright fire and brimstone.  I've never
seen anyone take it seriously.  Everyone here knows all the history of
the word, many know the history of Beastie himself, and so far as I
know, none have any plans to change him.

So Wake Up.
