We all saw this coming.

UNCLE WALT’S INSIDER H.Q., SVALBARD — Citing concerns that the symbol was being “overused,” the title graphics were becoming “confusing,” and the graphics guy was getting “lazy,” our Uncle Walt has banned the use of the red circle and slash graphic on this site, at least temporarily. [Ed.: Next to be “banned”: overuse of “quote marks.”]

We’ll keep you posted if the ban is lifted. [Marty: I already have the graphic ready!]
