Peter,

when you made your call to help whittle down the entries I was obviously
didn't read it carefully enough as it seemed to indicate that the
MARKETING bods would do the whittleing

case in point:

[from Peter Saint-Andre's memebers@ post dated Tuesday 4th March 2003]

1. The Marketing Team (led by Iain Shigeoka) will review all the entries
and create a "short list" of finalists -- probably no more than a dozen.
They will do this by March 13.

[from Peter Saint-Andre's members@ post dated Wednesday 5th March 2003]

1. The JSF Marketing Team will create a list of finalists by the end of
the day tomorrow (March 6).


nowhere in either post do I see anything about volunteers or input from
others. 

I'll accept whatever logo is declared the winner as we are nominally a
democratic group and majority rules but i will in all certainty be
"spoiling" my ballot paper on wednesday so as not to be counted as not
voting.

bst rgrds
Russell
