Well, it was not meant as a joke in bad taste - if I can make this connection, so can others, and it might be advisable therefore to call it something else. We've just had the BNP voted in here - call me oversensitive if you wish but rebranding might be in order.

Yeah, I'd call the critique over sensitive. I wouldn't change it. I don't even know if I fully understand it. What does storm have to do with the nazis? Would obeying the general rule just ban the word "hail" from any product/service?

Microsoft had a similar code name for the .net web services "hailstorm". Did that lead anyone to label Microsoft anti-semetic? No. No one even thought of it.
