Slashdot is currently suffering from some serious issues - lots of things aren't 
working, and people are unable to log in. We can't possibly consider releasing 
Mozilla 0.8 until they are back up and running, so that lots of Linux zealots 
and armchair coders can log on and slag off our hard work in a 
specially-prepared forum.

Also, how could we live without an avalanche of insight that Slashdot is not 
Freshmeat, and so shouldn't carry software releases. I've been looking forward 
to that for months.

Suggested fix: Hold back the release of Mozilla 0.8 until we've had CmdrTaco's 
personal guarantee that the world has begun spinning again, peace has broken 
out in Israel and ESR has fed all his guns to a hippo.

I want to see an MPEG of esr feeding his guns to a hippo.  Do you think he'd
unload them before the feeding?

"Suggested fix: Hold back the release of Mozilla 0.8 until we've had CmdrTaco's

I suggest we release 0.8 5 days after slashdot announces it. This way we can
assure people to create interesting and productive talkback, leading us to
develop a better product and thus advance to godhood.
Resolving worksforme because slashdot is up and we have released.

Good work all.

I suggest releasing Mozilla 0.8, then sending as many people as possible to the
slashdot site to say how good Mozilla 0.8 is, thus reversing the slashdot effect
and giving them a taste of their own medicene for a change.  We could also see
how many posts we can get moderated down as flamebait for stating the facts.

Mozilla 0.9.3 has been released and 0.9.4 will be released shortly. Slashdot
still has problems.

On the other hand they slashdotted Bugzilla...
