New Logo

There's nothing more frustrating than getting what you were
screaming for then finding out you didn't want it, isn't there?

Your welcome to use the Pokemon sex-toy logo all you want.
Me, I've enjoyed the comments on slashdot, and I have no
intention of using that red balloon sex toy logo on anything
I make up for FreeBSD.

This is exactly what happens when people try to mix
religion into things that belong in the secular realm.  Beastie
is not the antichrist and the morons that do not understand that,
the FreeBSD Project is better off without.  Take note - this is
only a logo so it's minor importance, - but this is perfectly
representative of the garbage that results when you bow down
before conservative fanatics that see devils in everything.

I hope you personally have learned something from this.
Unfortunately for the U.S., the politicians in power right now
need to learn the same lesson, and they won't - until the
same kind of garbage results from what they are doing, only
it will be infinitely more disastrous.
