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.

"Whomever wrote the article doesn't know what the hell he's talking about."

The author just gave a personal opinion on the matter. And did it in a fashion that might be considered polite and reasonable. You know, those basic fundamentals to get along?

Weither or not the information in the article is based on facts or not, is not important when the article is just a reflection of someone's opinion. So: opinions do not have/need to be objective or factual. Grasp that concept.

"The article closes with the point [...]" No, it doesn't. It closes with: "I believe [...]" And that's a fact. :-)
