Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

"one thing one learns in epistemology is that when people resort to emtoional arguments and ad hominem attacks, it often indicates a lack of evidence and reasoning supporting their viewpoint."

And one thing that one learns in real life is that most of what you learned in college is worthless. Another thing one learns is that emotional arguments and ad hominem attacks may indicate that the one making them has such contempt for the arguments and/or position of his opponent that he sees no value in attempting to address them in a more logical manner.

When someone insists that 2 + 2 = 3, it is easier to call him a dumbass than it is to use advanced mathematics to prove him wrong, and one can hardly be said to lose the argument by doing so.
