However, I'd like to thank you for your vigilance on this matter, and formally request a follow-up including a full list of all the other things this blog is not.

If you'll note the post, it was about the birth of a new nickname for a Michigan fan favorite, which I thought was funny. Not the fact that he got snakes.

I just sent the following email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
My name is [BostonWolverine] (LS&A class of 2005). My sister is a graduate from LS&A class of 1998. My mother graduated from U of M in 1972. My father received his PhD from the University of Michigan. This is only my immediate family - and I have several aunts and uncles who also got their degrees at Michigan.
In short, my family owes everything to Michigan. The university is an honorary member of our family. And so I must do what I can to speak up and protect it.
"Hail and Unite" is the very definition of gilding the lily. Our university has arguably the most recognizable fight song in the country. While I know this is neither designed to replace nor compete with The Victors, it will only serve to create unnecessary clutter, and can only be seen by alumni and outside observers alike as an affront to the tradition Michigan has spent nearly 200 years building.
I'm sure you mean well, and want to make your mark on the university that has meant as much to your lives as it has to mine. But, with all due respect, please find another way. No matter how good your intentions may be, you cannot turn a blind eye to how this looks to the outside world. It looks bad. Really bad. As in articles-written-about-how-bad-it-is bad. And it's not because you're doing something right. It's because you're doing something bad. Please stop. For all of us. And for Michigan.
