Do Mormon SEOs Dislike "Caffeine" Name For Google Update?

As many of you know, Google is giving us a preview of their major indexing and infrastructure update. They named this update, the Caffeine Update.

Yesterday I spotted a thread at Google Web Search Help forums, with one SEO asking Google to change the name. I didn't know this, but Mormons mostly don't drink caffeine. More on why they don't drink caffeine over here.

The SEO said:

I'm not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormon Church) but I do respect other religions. Since the Mormon religion disallows caffeine, please consider changing the name. It's kind of like marketing Google Bacon to Jewish or Muslim folks, or Google Brisket to Hindus.

Google Blitz would sound much better anyways.

It is an interesting point. I am Jewish, so I am not sure if I would be insulted if Google named an update, the Bacon update.

In any event, I just found this very interesting.
