French Geckozone Site Launches

Monday July 28th, 2003

Benoit writes: "We are proud to announce to you the creation of Geckozone. Initiated by several members of the Frenchmozilla localization team, this new site is targeted to French-speaking people seeking information, help and tutorials on Mozilla-based products.

"For now, only the forums are available to the French-speaking Mozilla community. The remaining parts of the site are expected to be launched in a few weeks. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the success of this initiative."

Damn, talk about a conflict of interest. A French Mozilla site, eh? Hrm, so, like when matter and anti-matter meet, has the world ended and everyone forgot to tell me?

OK Belgium is evil too. We even invented French Fries.

What, does the US own everything?!

Unless I'm mistaken, there are a lot of Mozilla contributors who live outside the States - I don't regard Mozilla as particularly American, so I don't see why there is a conflict.

Or, did I misunderstand and you where implying something else?

#3 Damn, that was meant as a reply to #1... (nt)

Oh just ignore him. He's clearly just a bit of an ignorant, xenophobic arsehole.

I know a lot of very nice Americans, but it's idiots like this that give the whoel country a bad name. I think it's a real shame.

I noticed it. :)

But the national-bushists on here distracted me so much that I forgot to mention it.
