Full Article Attached Astounding Comments From the WSP

Thursday July 20th, 2000

The WSP (Web Standards Project) now states that it is interested in released products more than compliance, and has released one of the most astounding pieces of work I have seen come out of their office.

The WaSP, a pseudonym which speaks for the whole WSP (or at least its leaders) has written a piece taking Netscape to task for failing to produce a browser in the allotted time limit. Click "Full Article..." below to read my response. For the record, I am not an employee of Netscape.

It just seems to me that the WSP is just an arrogant and hypocrite bunch. How much of *anything* have they produced that's actually useful? All they do is whine about others to do this, or do that, and once they do it, it's still not good enough. Yet instead of helping anyone reach the goals they're preaching about, they do nothing but whine about their efforts not being good enough. And then, to make matters worse, instead of nicely telling others know what's bothering them, their letters are the exact incarnation of what would be called 'flamebait' everywhere else. And rightly so, because that is exactly what it is; much like any Windows vs. Linux flamewar would start. Instead of polluting the web with this garbage they should make themselves useful and help develop Mozilla, or any other standards complain browser, even.
