"I've had a look at the forum on MozillaZine not thorough and found the Firebird (database) advocates to be no less rational than the Mozilla advocates."

Excuse me, Ann, you're looking in the wrong forums. Look here: <http://www.mozillazine.or…forums/viewforum.php?f=26>

How long is this silliness going to go on? There's only one group of people causing damage, confusion, and acting irrationally as far as I can tell. If the Firebird database people don't want two open source projects with similar names, they're free to change the name to something else. A name with "base" or "db" or "SQL" in it will prevent future confusion.
