OK, fairly serious question/discussion fodder time. I know this might strike you as somewhat unusual because you are expecting some surly and aggressive attitude and/or use of phrases like "wankshaft" and "monkey spunk" but hey, I'm nearly 40 soon and it's about time I grew up.
Everyone knows that the modern Games Workshop is the result of a reverse takeover whereby the subsidiary (Citadel Miniatures) took over the parent company and changed it's direction from a general gaming and RPG company into a pure wargames one. And upset a lot of people along the way.
But would there be as much opprobrium if the company name had changed to match? If these shops everyone hates having to go into had the words CITADEL MINIATURES SHOP above them instead and the GAMES WORKSHOP name and red/yellow/white logo had been phased out?
