That's why I wrote: "I am sure that mozdev.org is willing to invest some 
more time to please you, just as it does for so many people so many 
years already." meaning if Robert has a point, and he does seem to have 
one here, then we should make changes,right?

That was also the main reason for moving this thread to mozdev.org, not 
because I was childish disappointed, but because I wanted to trigger 
constructive feed back.  I guess I failed to make it clear.

Hey, I wasn't the one complaining, but Robert was.  Again, if he has a 
point, and a project here, did he ever mention it to you guys?
