    Before brushing it off as another stupid idea, think about it

    It may be a superficial change, but I like it and think it could make a positive difference.

    Agree/Disagree?

    might as well since it is another flame war forum.

    Nothing to do with any flames wars. This might actually be a good thing.

    I want it renamed for the sake of the title. It's flashier than 'open government'

    No. I mean, it's a humourous reference, but the point of the open government forum, unless I've misunderstood it, is to try to do better than Golding's characters.

    Alright, I admit - it might be over the top. Just testing the waters here

    I had to go with a negative response to this one.
    I don't think having any more predators in the forums would be a good idea.

    How about a compromise: instead of “power to the people” you put: “lord of the flies”

    It's a good idea...as long as people still understand what this forum is for, and don't turn it into an imitation of the novel.
