Now you can join and link up with fellow XUL coders and designers at local cafes (and other places) in 612 cities across 51 countries. Every 1st Tuesday of every month is now officially International XUL Meetup Day! Meetup with other local XML User Interface Language (XUL) coders and designers to discuss the future of the rich internet for everyone.
"PS: I (Gerald Bauer) will try to organize a first XUL coder and designer meeting in Vienna, Austria in May. See you there."
Same kind of thing as slashdot - think of it more as a forum than a news site. Anyone can contribute what they like, and if it's a pile of crap, then they'll get a whole bunch of comments saying it's a load of crap. Mozillazine is saying that Gerald wrote this stuff, they're not (in theory) endorsing it.
Personally I agree that they should focus on writing their own articles (which doesn't preclude mentioning a source), rather than posting up other people's crap, but it's their site, if you don't like it, you don't have to read it.
