This seems awfully opinionated and is a bit condescending to the 
community.  Are you saying the community has rotten taste and doesn't 
pick logos that have "thought" behind them?  I personally find this 
statement offensive.

What do you call the Apache feather then?  I am sorry, but that feather 
is obviously attached to a form of native american image.  Do you feel 
this way about the current Apache logo?

Is there a reason this type of verbage needs to be used?  Can we engage 
without showing disrespect?  IMHO, I think we don't need to rate 
people's taste factor.  Again, I find this particularly offensive.
