A carbon ring also has the advantages that it's regognizable as a very small logo, even as just a favicon.ico, and can be reasonably if stylistically represented in simple ASCII art. You can even put a tail off the top to look like 6-ish, or if you have real art skills, superimpose a Pearl into the hexagon with a little "VI" (both a Roman numeral and a vague homage to the text editor of it's UNIX roots).

Yes, lots of inside jokes, but that's part of the community thing....

Hodges' Rule of Thumb: Never expect reasonable behavior from anything with a thumb.
