Hi Michael,
indeed you are free to raise your opinion as well :-)
Perhaps I misunderstand your first paragraph, but nevermind, not an issue at all ;-)
Regarding the images suggested, personally I just look at the images for what they are, i.e. just images. In fact I
didn't even read the text in the websites suggested, I just looked at images for potential logos.
And anyone (including you :-) ) can propose other images for consideration as well.
So far based on the answers received on this ML, it seems that there is some support for the trefoil knot. That does not
mean it has already been chosen. Perhaps in the end we may just stick with the current logo, or we may adopt the trefoil
knot or some other logo.
At the moment we are just exchanging opinions.
