There exists a major security flaw in user authentication and access privelages at Mozillazine.org. Currently, a person who is not actively evangelizing Mozilla can read content at Mozillazine.org. Even worse is that such a person is able to wholeheartedly disagree with someone via a simple form submission. Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.mozillazine.org 2. Say something that makes the regulars think a little. Not something like 'Moz Rulez' or 'IE sucks', but rather, something that inspires a bit of stimulation to ones nuerons. 3. Wait a bit. 4. Eventually, a mozilla.org person comes along to challenge why you are reading content there and posting information that doesn't fall in line with what they happen to think. Solution: 1. Password protect Mozillazine. 2. Perform thorough background checks on all current and future visitors of Mozillazine. 3. Only issue passwords to applicants who are found to agree with everyone else. I believe in order to attain a community in which everyone agrees with everyone else that the above remedy is a must. ;)

I agree with this bug. It's not invalid. We have similar checks in place at bugzilla.mozilla.org. mozillazine.org is used to publish daily build comments, so it is a critical information source for Mozilla testers. We cannot tolerate that troublemakers distrub, distract and enrage dedicated Mozilla testers from their work and cause them to feel urged to defend Mozilla, which substracts from their time to test Mozilla and additionally demotivates them. We need to let our Mozilla testers know that they have strong support, without anyone attacking them from the back.
