Hi David,

I think Florian was speaking to Doug McCune in regards to influencing
others by describing his interpretation of the logo. Now other people
may see the logo in the same light as he did, and may never have come
to that conclusion on their own, and are now swayed toward the
alternate option.

I specifically didn't want to influence anyone by saying what others
saw in a particular logo, good or bad. I wanted everyone to come to
their own conclusion. But at the same time, I wanted to be transparent
about what PPMC members were discussing about the logos and how they
felt towards one vs the other, and without insulting the author. It's
a delicate balance, so I apologize if anyone is offended.

- Doug
