It's amazing how exercised people get over a topic like this, like in
that old story:
I think it's a pretty dumb logo myself, but a group of people that
offer you free software, and even some help using it -- that doesn't
seem benign to you? Why don't you talk to some of the other
Christians involved in the project, like those that maintain bible
study software in FreeBSD Ports?

Well, "nothing to do with" is overstating the case a bit. There are
some connections, even beyond the etymological, and not all Greeks
thought alike about them. But we take your point.

Some people would find this a lot more problematic than wearing a
daemon t-shirt. ;) Out of curiosity, Is that the one that got its ass
kicked at Pearl Harbor and Wake Island, or the one that got its ass
kicked at Arnhem? Or just a hardcore bunch of Man U. fans?

That seems like a waste of a perfectly good virgin.

I knew I was missing something.
