"Even worse, the guy may have already be sitted somewhere else and just because being a stupid jerk, moves to sit just by your side. That's Mozilla. It was happily enjoying a goog name, but had to make a move and take some other's, legally but also jerkilly." Meanwhile, that's nothing like mozilla since it was FORCED - LEGALLY - to change it's name. As it stands it was NOT 'sitting somewhere else.'

"And in the future for codenames use only names in the public domain like Everest, Mont Blanc, Osiris, Thor, and so on, you get it."
