Bobby was *never* a standard. Bobby was a tool (and not a particularly good one although at that). At the time it was one of the few and freely available which made it very popular.
The notion that people were developing to the 'Bobby standard' and therefore entitled to put the logo on is the root of the negative comments that you're receiving. The only logo that means anything in this context is a W3C one.
