Positive PR, finally! (Add more if you find them)

Unread post by moonbat » 2019-08-02, 04:18

I am sick of seeing people diss PM online with the old chestnut of it being 'outdated', so was pleasantly surprised to find that GHacks has posted about a new version being released, and they don't have the typical condescension or 'iT's aN oUTdAtEd fOrK' attitude. Of course the comments there...

Nothing new, really. For a while now Ghacks has been putting out articles for PM releases and the comments have always been toxic. Martin started moderating comments more carefully when some of the commentors resorted to referring to Pale Moon users as "autistic" among other slurs.

I read the article last month when Martin released it, as I read all the articles martin writes about PM. He has always been fair and informative about the browser. At that time there were only two comments and I never got around to going back to read further comments in order to get a laugh from the FF Fanboys. @Isengrim, you are correct, I do believe that Martin has started moderating the comments.

On a positive note, Pale Moon has recently been added to SpywareBlaster.
