I'm sorry that some people feel so strongly against voting about this.
Taking a vote is such a quick and simple thing compared to having a
discussion. It's the thing to do when the discussion doesn't find a
consensus. What's the harm?
Myself, I don't think any other issue is nearly as important.
If you accept a name for yourself, then you become that. It's why it
is so important to say to your daughter, "You did a bad thing" rather
than "You are a bad girl". And you should never call yourself
"stupid", or a "pig".
It's why I've always considered this group to be 'they' and not 'we'.
Such a name certainly must support the culture of confusion and
How about "Python by the Bay"?
