I'm wondering since when (and why) Memory Alpha is celebrating religious holidays such as Christmas. I'm pointing to the change of our logo on December 24th. Isn't this contradicting the essence of Star Trek and doesn't this prevent and subdue other religious holidays such as Hanukkah or Eid ul-Fitr? Not to talk about all the millions of Gnostics who won't celebrate one of the major holidays or Buddhisms or Bahá'í who have completely different beliefs. We should, in honor for all different spirits and according the spirit of mainly non-religious Star Trek, not celebrate our personal holidays here. That's just my feeling about this. — Florian - talk 14:26, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't know if you're partially joking or not, but if you're not joking I essentially agree. Picard(o) 14:30, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
I find the changing of MA's logo to be offensive; Wikipedia does not change its logo to endorse a belief system. I delete my bookmark to the Daystrom Institute every December for the same reason. -- StAkAr Karnak 14:39, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
