    wonderful research done here, anything with "Loco" in the name is ripe for cheap jokes, as well as easy dismissal and marginalization. And trying to encourage people to adopt the"loco" name and embrace it will be far more difficult than it has to be, what with needing to spend all that extra time just explaining it.

    But I definitely agree "we" should name ourselves before the media does because we all know that won't be pleasant. I think it should be something that has an immediate positive (or at least strong and confident) sound and connotation. Starting off with a word that we are trying to "take back" from a negative connotation is like intentionally breaking one of your ankles just before you are about to run a marathon.
