I entirely disagree. I think all Wikimedia logos should conform to a
particular theme (stylistic, colour, &c.). It gives Wikimedia a
unifying identity ([[corporate identity]]?) and makes our projects
quickly recognisable.

Many logos were nominated, some completely different to existing
logos, others not. Users chose this one by majority and we should work
to preserve this decision (perhaps by minimally modifying the logo to
escape the problem and resubmitting it to a vote).
