??Easter Eggs??

Cannot this be resolved without running to the list? Who cares?

1) Easter eggs unnecessarily bloat code. This upsets some people.
2) Management has no real control over Easter Eggs. Thus, the nature of the
Easter Egg is in the hands of an unruly, perhaps unled, few. This upsets
some people.
3) My opinion: Memory is cheap. Do you trust your co-workers? After all, at
least they asked! SUCK IT UP.

If you are worried that the Easter Egg will be inappropriate, say
inflammatory or harmful to your company, then bail. Otherwise, why not
permit yourself to be included? What of a company that would reprimand or
fire you because your name or likeness is in an Easter Egg? Do you really
want to work there?
