You are so far out of line it's not funny. You are being rude and disrespectful to a large number of people who give up their time to make a piece of software for the common good. Asa is here giving comments and feedback out of the goodness of his heart, and you presume that you have a god-given right to it, to make demands of him, and to make sideswipes about the very culture of the movement everyone in mozilla is working in. No doubt you won't see this, you'll consider your behaviour perfectly reasonable, and you'll attribute this outburst to people disliking negative feedback. With all due respect, that's bulls**t - it is the way you do it, not what you say that makes you so out of order.
As to your comments, even if they were voiced acceptably, I think the central point is way off base. If the favourite browser for windows on, for example, download.com, rating higher that IE6, is 'rejected' by the general public, then you must have a very bizarre idea of what acceptance is. Have a look at the comments and feedback (and number of thumbs up), and then come back and tell us now is too early for a release. Or, equally, don't bother.
