Are you just too dense to understand that supporting a logo contest
automatically implies that you are unsatisfied with the current
logo? If you like Beastie why on earth would you want a contest
to replace him?
For the last time, it is not the contest that I and others are
objecting to. It is what you intend to do with the results of
the contest - that is, replace Beastie.

Why would they bother posting at all? It is not they who are
being attacked - it's you and the others who want to dump Beastie
and replace him. Of course since they aren't being attacked
they aren't going to have a need to defend themselves.

An hour ago you posted this:
"if our much-larger user base has any interesting ideas for a new logo"
you did NOT say:
"if our much-larger user base has any interesting ideas for a logo"
Your statement implied that a logo already existed - which in fact it
You also said:
"Somehow the ones who like the PRESENT logo seem to think.."
What I see here is that when your using the "we never had a logo
before" argument, you pretend a logo didn't exist, but all other
times you acknowledge that it does exist.
