As a publicist, you sure know how to make your emails look like SPAM.

I clicked on the tinyURL link FULLY expecting it to be spam ( because I'm bored and was curious a to what browser trick it might be using. )

I was rather phased when it turned out to be something to do with GIMP.

I suppose if you're trying to trick people into reading something you imagine they don't want to read, you have to be a bit devious.

"I know you are tired of the "rename GIMP" threads, but I will bring this up once again so that you could be even more tired."

Thanks, but no, thanks.

Well, I deleted the message without reading, and I'm not planning to click the link until it is accompanied with some relevant information on why it would be relevant for me. Because unlike gg I'm not quite that bored...

Another doomed effort to convince the team to rename Gimp.

This time there's a concrete suggestion for a new name ("Imagine") and a stab at a new logo which shows some graphic thinking is at work, but the style is completely wrong for this type of product and looks like a fashion/makeover app for teenage girls.

I'm still convinced that this is a spamming attempt (or UCE attempt, actually) - a rather elaborate one, but still. Otherwise the initial mail would have been written in a much different style.
