But most people start as end users and then gradually become participants as they get integrated into the culture. I myself started out looking for an alternative browser, ended up filing bugs, downloading nightlies, learning xul, making skins, and becoming a standards advocate.

We can't throw end users away, since they are the pool from which participants come from. It is by using Mozilla that they discover Mozilla and what it stands for.

The important thing is to strengthen the culture so that we would influence newcomers to the community rather than they diluting it.
