I *told* you what it stood for and if we choose it, we'll continue to 
tell people what it means. Besides, there's tons of widely used projects 
that don't immediately signify anything to the end user.  Mozilla, GNU, 
Grub are just a few that come to mind - sure they mean something, and 
often when you visit their sites, you're told, but it's not apparent at 
first use.

Randy, you've made your choice, and expressed an opinion that you are 
totally entitled to.  Now, can you please do it without being 
disparaging or condescending?  Do you see me coming over to your project 
and criticizing harshly ideas that you have?  Your attitude here was 
totally uncalled for.  Next time show some consideration, or don't post 
at all.
