Shock as MozillaZine Readers Turn to Slashdot for Accurate Information

Thursday October 31st, 2002

For our last poll, we asked you where else you go to get Mozilla news. 848 of you answered with Slashdot getting 30% of the vote, almost twice as much as its nearest rival, MozillaNews, with 17%. The third-placed 'None of the above' option was favoured by 16% of you, which frankly tells us very little. FUD specialist MozillaQuest came in fifth with 8% of the vote, which concerns us slightly. 5% of you rely on mainstream tech news sites such as CNET's News.com or eWeek while 4% of you prefer the weblog style of Blogzilla. Newcomers Planet Mozilla and MozFan didn't do so well with 1% and 0% of the vote respectively. NewsForge, with 1%, also did surprisingly badly, especially considering the amount of news we steal from them. Finally, 14% of you just go wherever telnet to port 80 will take you.

For our next poll, we'd like to know what your favourite Phoenix theme is. The options are taken from the lists at the mozdev Themes project and David Tenser's Phoenix Help so don't blame us if your favourite theme isn't listed. Go and vote now or just sit on the fence and watch the latest results.


#87 He never said that

I do not see where he ever said anything resembling what you are accusing him of.

Can you quote anything from his posts to back up your accusations of him saying any of the following?

1) Phoenix was "almost meritless" 2) that he had "made Phoenix in 45 minutes" 3) that he had copied the source tree

As for your claim that he backed down from a debate, what debate? Your responses would have to be relevant to his posts in order for the exchange to be considered a debate. Personal attacks are also not appropriate content for a debate. Also, being disrespectful is not the same as just being unfriendly; you can be unfriendly and respectful at the same time. The problem with your side of the "debate" is that your posts are disrespectful, unfriendly, and ignore the points that the opposition was making. Unfortunately that seems to be your typical MO.
