OK, so that's a new one!  Someone created a
company called "Click Yes To Continue" and
then asked for a cert.

I can imagine a marketing dude coming up
with that title.  "Nothing wrong with that..."

:-)  Mind you it is going to annoy the PKI community.

The international signs community solved this
one a long time ago by going for standardised
pictures for standard signs.
