OSDir.com Reviews Mozilla Thunderbird

Friday June 18th, 2004

OSDir.com is running an article about Mozilla Thunderbird, following on from their earlier piece about Mozilla Firefox (covered by MozillaZine last month). The review examines Thunderbird's user interface, its junk mail controls and the range of extensions available. It also runs through the standard features, including multiple account support, message filtering and the spell checker.

Update: A comment about the quality of English in the linked review has been removed from this article.

"The point of advocacy is to bring in all elements together - as the article stood it was at best snobbish, and at worst portrayed an element of elitism."

I do understand the point you're trying to make here.

"Deliberately antagonising pro-Mozilla elements is not the way to advocate the project, and only seeks to reinforce the opinion's of those who seek to oppose Mozilla by claiming its proponents are nothing more then zealots."

It wasn't supposed to anatonise anyone, just make the write-up a little longer by referencing the quality of English in the review, which was a bit below standard for a professional article. It wasn't meant to reflect on the content of the piece.
