Whoa, that's powerful, powerful meme:

Want to steer clear of a child-sex-offender rap? Then worry about your browser's security!

That's WAY stronger than worrying about merely getting ripped off financially, or having someone spot your porn preferences, or whatever. Wow.

This is another good example of how FANS will, hopefully, operate.

According to the FANS view, we would not promote such a meme. (FANS is against promoting FUD, which is what excessive attention to a fear inducing meme would amount to, regardless of its merit.) Otoh, we can't stop the press and public doing whatever it chooses to do, and having and posting quality NPOV material *in response* to this meme would ensure that we serve the public to the best of our ability. And if Mozilla is all that it's supposed to be, then that NPOV material will result in casting a favorable light on Mozilla's technology and products.
