‘I'm appalled! How can you give free publicity to this monster?’

Hmm… I'm not sure you've grasped the benign spirit. Please remember that the names are only words which for some unfathomable reason have struck a chord, rung my bell, yanked my chain or otherwise tickled my psyche. Admittedly the list does contain more than its fair share of undesirables, and perhaps there is some deeper significance in this… but I doubt it.
