I've had to deal with Ali (aka "galaxy") a few times. He is one of those kiddies (mentally, that is), that cannot understand how we can invalidate/duplicate his dear and long-thought bug reports. 99% of the people understand that a QA job is a hard one and we are not always in the mood to write 50 lines to explain why it is a duplicate or invalid, but Ali is part of those 1% that thinks it is virtually impossible that he made a mistake. He is frustrated and now he fights Mozilla because we proved him wrong, and he knows it, and it makes him mad. Those trolls have to be ignored since we cannot in any way keep them from expressing themselves.

I say, let's answer the constructive comments (and ignore the flamebaits), even if they are against Mozilla, explaining why they are wrong (or will be wrong soon enough). If you run out of arguments e-mail me, I'll always find some for you. ;-)
