Smub sounds like something you spray with insecticidal soap when they start eating your plants.

This one actually made me laugh.

Not to mention that it sounds idiotic if you try to pronounce it with a French accent - which I confess to have tried for the past minute or so. (The dog didn't notice - I think the "Blellow" episode inured her to my mutterings.)

Great post, but definitely an unfortunate name.

I actually thought that it might be a portmanteau of "smart" and "stub" (a short article in need of expansion), but that doesn't really improve it.

A "Smub" sounds like a Dr. Seuss character to me : possibly an unwhitting friend to a "Grinch."

And why have the B in a different color? Southern Methodist University B?
