   Only if you want it to take a *long* time to answer this question. =)

Also, choices made by intelligent, thoughtful individuals are often
better than choices made by crowds.  For example, a poll might result
in choosing a name which sounds good but happens to have no particular
political connotations, whereas someone might delibrately choose a
name based upon it having some desireable political connotation, since
people will use savannah regardless of whether they happen to like the
sound of its name just a little bit or a lot, and if the name has a
political connation, it may reinforce a particular message every time
someone uses the site.
