Well...we were "told" that was being removed. The idea came from somewhere in Russia I believe, and a couple brought the chain to CTI with their personalized lock, and people added to it.
Then, as was bound to happen, some people got all up in arms over "the poor tree" and "oh how tacky" and on and on, and so Randymon (I think I'm remembering correctly) said management had not approved it and it would be removed. Interesting to see it still there. :-)
