Cliff, yes I do.

As you may have seen from previous posts I've only just been catching
up with this.
My concern is that it is not appropriate for the incubator to continue
to condone a practice which at best raises certain moral questions,
and at worst can be seen as exploitative and often goes against the
wishes of the communities it affects. The fact that Glaswegians may
not feel particularly exploited, or that there is a precedent for
proper nouns to be used for project names should not matter. What
should concern the incubator is, as Robert said, continuous
improvement. Please would you at least think about re-considering the
name and trying to come up with a proposal which isn't also a proper
noun?
