"Hi mister macpeep Let me say, that we don't care about your IE comments. We are mozilla enthusiasts, we do not give a damn whether this or that browser is better, specially at this stage in the development of the software"

That's the problem! You *should* care about other browsers and you should care about quality and you should care about gettings Mozilla to be as good as anything else out there. Why would you bother making another browser then, if it will be no better than anything already out there? If I don't want to use a Microsoft product, I could just use Opera! It's WAY better than Mozilla at this point!

I care about Mozilla and I want it to be good. I report bugs and I'm involved in discussion about it. I don't have time to *code* on Mozilla because I have another day job. And you know, "at this stage of the development" would have flown a year ago, but Netscape released 6.0 ages ago and there are only a couple of months left to 1.0 of Mozilla. "At this stage", we are actually quite late in the game and things should be much more polished than they are. Closing your eyes to the facts and asking people to shut up just because you don't agree with them is not the way to go.
