The Institute will have a DOG

Torchwood won't have K-9 but they will have their own DOG. This slow news weekend gives me the chance to start a campaign against the BBC3 logo DOG or BUG that will likely deface the screen during Torchwood broadcasts.

I know I am not the first to complain about the Digital Originated Graphics (DOG) on BBC3 and louder voices have not convinced them to change it. The viewing masses just can't stay quiet any longer damnit. I really don't mind DOGs (a better acronym is Distracting Onscreen Graphics) if they are small, in the bottom right corner and translucent. That way they do the job of IDing the station without getting in the way. The BBC3 DOG is big, 1/3 of the way in on the top, and opaque.

I do know some of the BBC brass check up on this page, so here is our chance to stand together and fight the power! Sign your name in the comments if you choose to be part of this great simmering movement against the DOG! (Well at least during Torchwood broadcasts)
