Thanks for clarifying. The USPTO Trademark Office is not like Wikipedia 
in that you can "edit this trademark"
whenever you want, and given the investment in securing a trademark, the 
entire thread evidenced a startling lack
of understanding as to why trademarks should go on a slow path. I was 
wondering what the Board was thinking,
but you have clarified that this is not a Board topic at present.
