Let's take it a bit further. What can they do if we stick to our guns and continue to use the name Acacia? Threaten us with sanctions? :hmz: I say stuff them, we print our own books the way we see it and they can print their versions.

Josh, to be more serious, it appears that body that made the decision shifted the goal posts. Suddenly a 60% vote was needed to overturn the decision where a simple majority would have been sufficient. Clearly they have gone beyond their own rules and Constitution(If they have one). This can be challenged in Court.

We have them down in my neck of the country, arks. (and I didn't know until I moved to AZ!) I have one in my front yard.
