I'll repeat, I'm not personally offended by the logo.
Unfortunately there is a resemblance, however unintentional, to a notorious and rightly despised historical symbol associated with the very worst of human nature. Several people have noticed it. There was even a thread discussing this similarity before version 3 was released.
I don't see why an already popular text editor needed to rebrand to a logo reminiscent of something so potentially painful to a lot of people, particularly when Sublime had a perfectly good logo already. It feels like an unnecessary own goal. Brands get called out for far less these days, after all.
Saying "woo, angle brackets!" simply reaffirms the stereotype about emotionally tone-deaf developers. The point is there are no " limits of objective criteria to affirm the resemblance between two symbols", that's why good taste and good judgement are required. On reflection, though I'm not "offended", when considering the disregard for history and the potential to cause pain to others I feel neither has been exercised here.
