A Wiki (sometimes called a Wiki Wiki) is a collection of pages that can be freely contributed to and edited by anybody. Read the full article for more details.

Good morning, Gerald. I hope you'll agree that I can speak for the Mozilla project. In passing, I should point out that according to Bugzilla Michael has triaged and resolved 815 bugs, making a massive contribution to Mozilla in that area alone. I would do the same calculation for you but, as far as I can tell, you don't have a Bugzilla account at all.

It's not splitting hairs when it creates confusion in the marketplace - you are calling multiple incompatible things by the same name, a name that mozilla.org originally used for its specific XML-based UI langage, and which is a de facto trademark of the Mozilla Foundation.
The Mozilla Foundation cares deeply about your misuse of our XUL trademark, as we have informed you by private email (which you chose to post publically). We request and require that you cease from using it.
