I'm sorry Kevin,

  You misinterpreted my replay. I know FOSS well, from before the time of NCSA
Mosaic. The intent was, regardless of what is depicted, it doesn't impact
adversely impact another. I'm more than happy to see pride month celebrated or
supported and whether Arch chooses to participate or not isn't something I see
as political. (thus the "It isn't hurting me [or anyone else] at all" comment)

  So I apologize if the intent you gleaned differed from that intended conveyed.
