I'm not understanding what the problem is, perhaps Dan can elaborate.

I'm also not understanding this opinion either. Without seeming
condescending, I don't get how you could get mixed up between a bin (trash
can), stop sign, folder icon, label icon, back arrow and box? To me they
seem intuitive enough. The only one IMHO that is not so intuitive is the
'Report Spam' one, but my brain learnt that one pretty quickly.
