The NASCAR like corporate branding of OWASP materials is both ugly, and 
unnecessary. There must be a better way forward. Branding is offensive 
and aggressive.

OWASP is a charity - you don't feed children in Africa by first making 
them watch Monsanto, Kellog's and McDonald's advertisements so they know 
who their 'food' was provided by. Instead you tell people who care by 
pointing out your charity work.
