That's the kind of mentality I am talking about. The "we are better
than you" mentality, should stay with the Java and .NET people. If you
have this urge of feeling superior and believe haskell-hacking is some
kind of achievement..... .

Haskell is a tool like any other, it's the ideas you manifest by it
that are important. And of course the way you do it. The logo should
be attractive; fire sparks of curiosity, represent what haskell is,
capture the essence of haskell.

Ps: This is no flame, I am making a point. If you feel this is a
flame; then I must apologize for the harsh tone.
