    Non-Violent LOGO

    It is a buddah signature peace not power like the Nazi...... the triangle is the design I incorperate. I drew it on the wooden wall of my shipyard and decieded that I would use it on the Shipyard LOGO.:)

    I dont think anyone in the world can claim this logo...... because I drew it during phases of my boredom.:)

    PS. I think someone deduct my rep based without explaination of my logo? How silly some use the forum power.

    Still, even if I try to stay open and whatnot, I still get bad connotations from it.

    Unfortunately, The Nazis screwed that sign up for good, and you can't just decide that that is not hwat it has come to symbolise.

    Sorry, Welly, but I have to agree, that is not a good message to send, even if it's us that aren't open enough.

    Even though I wasn't even thought of at the time of WWII, I'm a european, and that symbol is so strong that I almost feel nausea, just from looking at.

    It's good, though, that you can abstract from the nazi-connotations, but I can't. I'm not that big a person.

    True welly, that wasn't how the system was supposed to work

    Edit:

    Thanks, Welly, that would be nice - I know you don't mean anything bad with the symbol. :)

    Yes, he would be "OK" in a legal sense.

    I did notice it swung the other way, however, the connotations are the same - the direction doesn't matter as to how it is perceived to most people.

    Edit: Nice welly, now your avatar is good again :)

    Well, SeaSpark who is not a buddist and no knowledge or wanna ask from PM immediately gave me a bad rep.?

    Why not just send me a PM before hand, ask me if I am thinking what he is thinking? Why must he be trigger happy?:( It is not that I do it on purpose........

    well, it disappeared in the western world with the appearance of the Nation Socialist party.

    Unfortunately, this episode shows how little is accomplished by taking "reputation" from people, how much it promotes misperceptions, and how a post or an im can make things better, faster, and more understandable.

    The forum hardware offers a great feature in each members profile setup called a buddy/ignore list and works great to remove the predictable content that occurs from regulars. Thanks Jeff for taking an active role lately. Freedom of speech does come with some consequences in a free and open society. Just ask some present day musicians and politicans, too. :)

    There are plenty of internet forums that are centered around world politics, which will never be solved by online print or will ever solve anything of any value. There are also boat forums that have a section that allows for selective hostile content and will stifle freedom of speech and allow for this one sided attaboy conversation too.

    Erm, Figgy, that was me saying that, not Welly.

    And I do agree that it is smallminded, but it's difficult to escape the connotations one gets from looking at it.
