Mr. Starkey, evidently I cannot read the drivers' mind, so you may look directly at some Asa's posts about their recent position: <http://www.mozillazine.or…storder=asc&start=284>

I'm not sure if they are right or wrong, it's a complex matter, but I believe they are sincere. Asa explained for example (Thu 17th Apr 2003 9:52pm) why the things were different when talking with Phoenix Technologies about the other name conflict (without mailbombing, etc., in that case).

Let's hope Firebird and Mozilla will be able to communicate peacefully when the things calm down, and to find any reasonable solution.
