"this site has a tendency to propagandize for Mozilla"

WTF do you think this site was created for? This is an advocacy site. "Your Source for Mozilla News and Adovcacy"! If you want to bust our chops for being advocates then screw you. You're not helping Mozilla in the least by killing someone's buzz about Mozilla, even if that positive feeling isn't always rational. There is absolutely nothing gained by bringing people down. Folks didn't say "wow! it's great! we're done. let's all go home". We're all still working very hard to make it better. Telling us to not get excited about making progress is rude and insulting. We don't need you to tell us how good it is or isn't. We don't (or shouldn't) give a damn what you think because you're "mixed reality" doesn't motivate us to work to make it better. Keep on telling people to stop being excited about progress and they will soon stop working to make progress. Many of the people working on this are paid in the simple currency of joy. You and macpeep and others are ripping that currency away from a lot of people who are happy spending their time to make Mozilla better. Like I said above, this is rude and it is not welcome in a Mozilla Advocacy discussion forum.
