Interesting.. rant. Thanks for the logo collection, though, some of
them are visually quite breathtaking.

Q1: if you argue that Lisp and Scheme implementations are not purely
functional enough to merit the use of the lambda character, then
surely you'd be happy with the new Chicken logos, as the stylized
representation is less obvious?

Q2: if you preach about the sanctity of Greek characters, then what
does your use of the sigma character mean -- that your site is a
summation of all knowledge?
