It's obvious that you make broad stereotypical assumptions about people.

I know what the GNKSA is for. Why do you think I said that consumers don't care? They don't care because the "basic, necessary parts of netnews" are already in the newsreader - otherwise we wouldn't have a newsreader. What isn't is 100% support of GNKSA - because no users care about it right now. It's only meant to prevent spammers, and spammers have their own autoposters anyways.

Why don't you go read the GNSKA bug that tracks the issues associated with scoring 100%. <>

Does anyone care about a bug entitled "overzealous blocking of cross-posting to multiple hosts"? Wouldn't you rather have developers work on something entitled "Mozilla crashed in Necko.dll as install finished, now application will not start"?
