We haven't been invited to vote on that, although that was the proposal I put forward.  Thank you for remembering.

Yes.  It was JJ, who is opposed to name-changing, who is polling the group about this, which wasn't anyone's proposal.  Sort of a slight-of-hand, mob-rule kind of trick.  But, I say this smiling, because it is amusing and not so important.  I just thought the pending length of the new lists' names was a good excuse to bend the name a little and appease us who are not content with the name.  But, clearly JJ didn't agree and put forward a losing proposal instead.

It's all good,
