    If 10% of the people on here were offended by your avatar, you'd change it, right? Without hesitation, and without thinking?

    However, since the "feel like it" standard was apparently used in this case, I imagine it must be there, or they wouldn't have used it.

    So this isn't about making anything right for the Native Americans, it was all just to get the government to arbitrate the trademark. Wow, is that a victory for anyone?
    It's got a lot of insensitive white folks panties in a twist. So there's that.

    I have no problem with that remedy. Free speech is preserved while the government refuses to protect the commercial value of it.
