"It is a philosophy that made the 20th century the bloodiest in human history" Wow, you must revisit your history lessons before you make this kind of claims. I bet native americans from North, Central and South America will rightfully say that European colonization was the bloodiest even in history. If that is true or not, am mnot sure, b ut I can tell you that the spread of empires all over the world and through history have been significantly bloodier than most events (if not all) of the 20th century put together. It is silly the ridiculuous anti-communist rethoric of some people here in the USA.

"Mozilla.org really is a Communist organization"

Communism is not only an economic system where the means of production are owen and controlled by the state, hence by the "people" (at least in theory). It is also a social system that in theory where the will ofthe whole prevails over the indiviual as opposed to the individualistic philosophy of a capitalist system. So in a general social context, Mozilla is a communist system (notice am not using a capital C in communism.) What is wrong with that? If you don't like Mozilla graphics and still have interest in using a Mozilla based browser, you have other options (Netscape 7.02, Galeon, K-meleon, Epiphany, Mozilla Firebird)

You must have a lot of time on your hands to waste with this silly argument that has been debated a zillion times. Have a sense of humor and move on.
