No, that's totally the wrong end of the stick (did you read the url I
posted?) - any groups are generally perfectly free to use the logo,
subject to permission being obtained as described on the Trademark
webpage. Such permission is generally granted easily.

However, in his email, the webmaster asked (and it's no more than
"asked") to avoid *modifying* the logo. That's very different from
preventing use of the logo.
