I run any prospective logo through two initial tests:
If the logo doesn't look good in monochrome I think it fails the first test. Right now, if the banner were black, instead of red, it wouldn't look that good and a good logo should be simple enough that it can look good in monochrome.
Another test I like doing with logos is to make it much smaller and see if it still works. E.g. could you make a 16X16 pixel representation of it? Here you can't and there's not a small portion you could use for that either (e.g. the a2k logo doesn't look good very small either but you can use the question mark only in those scenarios).
I'm not a great logo designer (not much of one at all in fact, and have only done one logo in my life that I liked myself) but I do order logos a lot, and this one wouldn't be a favorite for me.
