"E-bay, How dare you use the Tux

"E-bay, How dare you use the Tux Penguin symbol in such a manner as to suggest that GNU/Linux users are spammers. This symbol appears on the shirt of the miscreant in your "Dunk the spammer" game, and the conclusion is obvious to anyone who plays it.

I have been a GNU/Linux user much longer than I have been an
e-bay customer and I can assure you of which way my loyalties will lay if this deeply offensive, discriminatory depiction is not rectified immediately.

FYI: GNU/Linux and associated Free Software are absolute world-leaders in producing anti-spam software. One of the reasons that we prefer Free Software is for the very reason that we are NOT inflicted by spam in the way that Microsoft users suffer.

This depiction of GNU/Linux is beneath contempt.
