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.

#16 have you been following the name conflicts?

there have been numberous name conflicts for a year now, they've been dealing with this in earnest for a LONG TIME. this was the first name that was a) morally clear b) legally clear c) popularly supported.

'This is obviously a calculated effort to use the name IN SPITE OF the fact that another, well-established project is already using it."

right, becuase was just itching for a massive flamewar. come off the conspiracy theories please.
