Frankly, I'm sick of ribbons.

Google reveals that, in addition to the EFF blue ribbon, there are red
ribbons for AIDS awareness, pink ribbons for breast cancer research,
jade ribbons for liver disease awareness, lavender ribbons against
homophobia, the aforementioned yellow ribbons to end the Gulf War, a
different yellow ribbon against teen suicide, the white ribbon
campaign working to end domestic violence, purple ribbons for
nonviolence, a tricolor ribbon for polyamory acceptence and on and
on. Indeed, there is even the amazing ribbon-o-matic at

I'm sorry to be so negative, and I really do like the idea of some
physical manifestation of support for Dmitry and against the DMCA, but
ribbons are simply no longer original. C'mon, we can do better!
