Reg readers name BSA antipiracy weasel

The people have spoken

Poll result Well, the votes have been counted in our poll to name the BSA's anti-piracy weasel - or rather its fluffy ferret mascot designed to warn children of the perils of IP violation.

Over 8,000 of you put mouse to button, and the percentage of votes cast for each of the ten options was:

  • Warez the Weasel - 27
  • FUD the Ferret - 20
  • Fluffy, eighth minion of the Weaselarchy - 8
  • Baron von Robber Rodent - 8
  • Evil Knweasel - 8
  • Bill - 8
  • Quisling - 7
  • Neferretous - 6
  • Popgoes (the weasel) - 6
  • The Mad Mustelid - 2

So there you have it. We hereby declare that said creature will henceforth be known as "Warez the Weasel™" The BSA has been informed of our beloved readers' decision and a hefty invoice for the first ten years' exclusive use is in the post. Failure to forward payment by return will, naturally, result in immediate litigation.

We thank all those who took the time to participate in the democratic process for the greater good of decent, law-abiding Americans. ®
