If by "condescension and arrogance" you mean no longer wanting to have
to slog through the same repeated arguments made by people who feel that
the name of an app seems to need more discussion than how the app works,
well then yes. It's GPL'ed. If you don't like it, fork it and call it
whatever you're little heart desires. You won't because it's been
suggested before, and naught has happened (that's been announced anyway).
Geez, go out and buy yourself a sense of humor for the holidays.
