Ah, did you by any chance respond to the ADVERTISEMENT on the Firefox User Support forum? That has nothing to do with this site, you know. It's just an advertisement.

You see, Kerz, you have to put those ads somewhere else.

Thanks for your feedback on the advertisements.

In response to this, we will make it more obvious that the ads are ads.

Can you remember the address of the website that the free rescue disk ad directed you to? We will look into blocking it from appearing again if it's deceptive.

It's probably the one right at the top of the Firefox Support Forum. It doesn't matter if it's deceptive or not. Those ads all look like part of the site -- like something Mozilla is offering. :omg:

Except that this is not a Mozilla site. Mozillazine is independent of the Mozilla Foundation.

Not that anyone would know. The names are curiously similar. If they were'nt in cahoots, MozillaZine would be out of business or would have a different name. But...

it's a moot point for this thread. Evidently I can't read. :)

Back in the Neolithic era when MozillaZine started, no-one really cared about protecting the Mozilla trademarks. We should probably make the relationship (or lack of) clearer.

Those new beta 1.5 versions of guitar picks sure are buggy... I mean my fingers are bleeding, that's it I'm going back to Micropick.
