Neowin.net Reports on Firebird Name Debate

To the best of our knowledge, MozillaZine was not hacked on Friday. From what we understand, a large load on the MySQL database put a lot of strain on the server. This caused the error messages that some users saw while using site features such as the Talkback article comments pages and the forums. At some points during the day, MozillaZine went down completely. For this reason, the Talkback pages and the forums were temporarily disabled but should now be fully working again.

So what we got due to that name is a real lot of publicity :) That's the good side of it...

And the other side: Well, just do a very slight rename now and call it "Flamebird" - after some flamewar that name might even be better ;-)
