Would We Hate it So Much if it Had a Different Name?

Have you ever used the font Comic Sans?
Apparently it is the most hated font out there, and there is a movement to have it banned.
Perhaps people would like it better if it had a more serious name and usage, like Helvetica.

I work in a field where we are very conscious of fonts, and we don't use this one in our company materials (our "standard" is Book Antiqua), but I still don't see the point of BANNING it. Choose your font for your purpose, and move on. Let the poor font live!!

And... cool... making your mark as a font designer. I really am still amazed at all the various careers out there that I never even consider exist. Cool.
