Sometimes us old folks need those relevancy links...

So... Besides Code Red, which is really Mountain Dew (Red), what other (red) products have appeared lately?

I stopped paying attention 13 years ago during the (product)Clear days of Crystal Pepsi. [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

I happen to think it's pretentious BS. If you want to do some good directly, donate to a solid charity.

I find it irritating that there is a half-assed attempt to make the logo work in plain text - (product)red instead of typing it PROPERLY - product red. But then I think of darling LaTeX, and wonder if I'm being crochety, because I have no problem with the dodgy capitalisation. (I do know that these are not all English characters). Still, the wiggly baseline of the \latex logo isn't standard practise.

Oh! Is that what it's all about! Geez... I'm with you. I still think Sponge Bob Pink Pants is the most ridiculous thing I've seen but this (product)Red thing is a close second.
