Request From MozillaZine
Thursday August 12th, 1999
I've been considering recently the possibility of adding advertisements to MozillaZine. I've been interested in moving to a dedicated machine which would 1) give us control over the operating environment, 2) free us from sharing CPU time with 50 other websites and 3) give us a machine to use for other projects, and advertising would help pay for the server every month. More importantly, advertisement would allow us to branch off into another area, by allowing us to pay authors for work on tutorials and articles.
So, my questions are:
>The only thing i'm against is selling my email address!! ;)
Don't worry about that! No one has access to our members list but me, and I'm not selling it, and have no intention of ever selling it. In fact, that's part of my privacy statement on the members page.
"All solicitations for our users' information, except legitimate legal subpoenas, will be ignored. This is our promise to you."
I need to amend that to say "We will never sell or give away your information to any one, except in the case of legitimate legal subpoenas. Your password is encrypted in our database; even we don't have access to it. Please choose your Password Hint wisely."
The only way someone could get your email address from mozillaZine is by trolling the forums and snaggging any email addresses they find.
