Sorry, seems you missed the point. Arno did'nt want to say "Mozilla people re-thinked their opinion", just "wide public opinion is". I'll not make guesses how much of votes came from Firebird community (I think many), how much from Mozilla one and how much from off-site observers. I think this poll was started by Alex Bishop mainly to give us (Firebird people) opportunity to attract attention to the problem by more civilized way than we initially tried. Many thanks to him. You said: "Just tell me which poll entry I should vote for and I'll be able to do 30 votes in a short while." I assure you, when I placed link to this poll on Russian Firebird community forum, I and others reasonable persons intentionally warned young and hot members to don't betray of rendered to us confidence. If there were some idiots, I don't think many ones. BTW, regardless of future final of this story, I'm glad we are starting to hear each other, not just loudly speak :)
