Right on one count, wrong on the other

I think you're 100% correct on the icon issue, Nathan. Illustrators are sort of dumb though - they have a hard time grasping licensing sometimes. I know because I am one. However, the GIMP UI Brainstorm project *does* listen to feedback, as you would know if you read their recaps of user submissions. They have made a smart decision in not opening the floodgates of endless UI criticism by allowing just anyone to join their leadership. Many of the best open source projects do this. In this case, there are way too many self-proclaimed "UI designers" out there and they all have different ideas. I think their current blog format is genius. Also, while you're at it, why don't you attack every open source project with a SABDFL? Boo hoo, Mark Shuttleworth won't return my phone calls! It's not an open process! ...Seriously.
