El Reg pledges to name BSA antipiracy weasel

Get those suggestions in

Competition The Business Software Alliance's plans to name their weasel mascot by holding a competition for school children has obviously moved you, our beloved readers. Such a quantity of emails flooded into Vulture Central that we felt it our duty to respond with immediate action.

Accordingly, we have decided that we will hold a little naming competition of our own, and will send the winning suggestion to the BSA and insist that they adopt it forthwith or face legal action.

It will work thusly: you send us your suggestions, we'll collate the top ten (most popular, or just ones we like) and hold a poll to determine the winner. Yes. You, the readers, will have your say. This is just like reality TV, except that there is no TV involved. Or reality.

Here are some suggestions to get your minds working on this one, taken from today's letters bag:

  • Popgoes (the weasel)
  • Rip-off Rat
  • Money-hungry mink
  • Subpoena Skunk

You get the idea.

Note: We have now closed the suggestions inbox and are collating the data. Poll will be up on Tuesday 17 August. Thanks to all those who have sent in suitable monikers. ®
