Apropos...

Points taken regards the Pale Moon policy on commercial software 'contributors' to the Pale Moon extension inventory. However, it seems reasonable (to me at least) that these offerings should be segregated, or at least clearly identified as such at the top level of the Browser Add-ons section.

Request denied.

Licenses for Extensions and Themes are made perfectly clear on the specific Add-on's page if they are hosted with us. In the case of Externals, that is up to them. I, however, will not devise a system for segregating or discriminating against one group of add-ons over another. Be it promoting one class or burying another. The clearly marked [Externals] is a special case because you leave the Application's Add-on Site to go somewhere else. This needs to be made clear for reasons of navigation but they are otherwise treated the same in category listings.
