And your point? So go ahead and try to take back the symbol and restore
its original meaning. Let me know though--I want to give you a wide berth
when the cries of "anti-semite" start cropping up.

That's odd. I've an email here that says "there've been discussions" about
it. Alright, no complaints then. Personally I wouldn't get my bum in a
knot--I don't care. I just had a tough time pasting the logo small enough
to be semi-tasteful but large enough to make out the word "NetBSD" on all
the NetBSD Girls I posted a while back. :) There's too much detail dammit!
