i sent them an email with some comments on the inaccuracies in their blocking message, a screen shot of the site in mozilla without the browser sniffer (looks excellent), and the evangelism letter, and got this reply from Lilach: שלום רב, הסיבה בגללה אינך מסוגל לצפות באתר, הינה מאחר ואתר "יותר " מיועד לצפיה רק בדפדפן אקספלורר נשמח לסייע בכל שאלה / הבהרה לילך translation: hello, the reason you cannot view the site is that Yoter is intended to be used only with the Explorer browser. we will be happy to assist with any question, Lilach. as if i didn't know...
wow, that's the most unpolite answer I ever read!
you ain't seen nothing yet :) most sites i complain to don't answer, and those that do usually have the same answer, some remarking that Netscape holds only a marginal share of the browsers market (and in israel the situation is worse, because Netscape had no support for hebrew until v6).
they argue at least - this is like "fuck if, if you don't pray to god Bill!"
tech evang june 2003 reorg
