ok, so the new title of this forum is Spyder Online Community (SOC), should we call it SOC or KUSA.

I also voted KUSA...it's been known as that for a long time, and those who don't frequent here but have heard of us know that name as well. I also think KUSA looks and sounds better than SOC, but that's just me.

I voted KUSA because SOC sounds like a Japaneese word for some weird soup or something

Even though I came up with SUSA, I still voted for KUSA because like Dre said:

soc reminds me of spec. ops. command...and SOCOM(which both mean the same thing)

Thats a tough one. I always thought of "Spyder" as just one of the products in the Kingman line-up (thinking back to the pre-spyder Hammer days of course). But I think that somewhere along the line, the name Spyder became a more valuable and recognizable brand than the Kingman name. I understand the need for the change from Kingman USA to the more recognizable Spyder name, but I don't think the parent company should sell itself short. Aside from nostalgia.... the very word Kingman commands a fair amount of respect. Just say it out loud. KINGman! Its like royalty. Spyder is okay too, I guess. Its an intimidating insect that most people are afraid of. But its still just a bug. You can squash a spyder with your foot or with a rolled up newspaper. You can't kill a King(man) quite as easily. No sir... I'm sticking with Kingman. For old time's sake, for the power of the name itself, and for the sake of all things good and true... Kingman for ever!

(yikes! I must be on crack today or somethin')

Well, and another thing to consider are the other Spyder forums out there that already have Spyder in their name. I used to visit them, but they just aren't KUSA. The name (or rather, initials) KUSA just sets us apart from them.

KUSA is kinda dated and it doesn't look like the direction Kingman is going anyway (especially since they dropped the USA part a while back)
