I'd like to add to the chorus of sadness; the Halloween theme made my  
day and it's a shame that some people have no sense of fun and humor.  
When the stars are right and dred Cthulhu comes to claim us from the  
unknown depths beyond nightmares, I know he will treat them in a  
manner befitting their overly-serious views.

But I have to say I think part of what made the Halloween theme fun  
would be taken away if it was up to me to apply it. I'd rather see  
the fun continue, and I'd love a few more each year to be sure. I  
suppose an option to turn it off once it appears, or maybe just  
before, would suffice to quell the nay sayers (until Cthulhu eats  
them, of course). :-)
