How about we simply make some "Entertainment" root project, move "Games"

"PseudoScience" subproject and just be done with it so everyone is happy
and the names seems to fit as well?

I do not think that packagers should be making editorial comments about the
nature of astrology in classifying it. "Entertainment" "Games" and
"PseudoScience" are as bad as "Science" or "Education". Some take astrology
seriously.

Linux is about freedom. Let each individual be free to make up his or her own
mind about larger issues. Packagers should package programs accurately letting
users decide questions of worth.

I suggest some neutral classification such as "graphics". All will agree that
astrology programs produce graphical output.

Some people like looking at horoscopes only to enjoy looking at the unusual
symbols.
