In terms of welcoming strangers, I think "suburban Terror" might be a 
little hard to market.

| A poll will treat everyone's opinions equally, but it wasn't the number
| of opinions that made me change the party's name -- it was the strength

| approve of the name, "SubUrban Terror," and nobody else disapproves of
| it, we'll name the LAN party:
|                 SUBURBAN TERROR
|                 The New Jersey Ubuntu Local Community's
|                 Summer 2008 Barbecue and LAN Party
