From the sounds of it, I'm assuming they gave you the boot or something. Mind elaborating?
I would prefer not to at this time.
Seems my attempt to do my job relating to the Addons site project has been deemed abuse at Mozillazine. As most of you may know I am in charge of the Addons site and part of that responsibility is to go and inform Addon developers about the recent GUID changes of Pale Moon so they can get addons to work out of the box by the time v25 ships.
The Problem: Some (a very small number) addons only offer support through threads at Mozillazine. Mozillazine has a history (due to a small minority largely consisting of a moderator by the username of LoudNoise) of subverting any dialog relating to Pale Moon.
For those addons that ONLY offer a support channel via Mozillazine I went and posted a request on three addon threads about the change and to request them to support Pale Moon directly.
For my trouble all but one post was deleted and the remaining one was split off and locked and moved into another category outside of the main flow of traffic. That post is here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic ... &t=2866589
As you can see the title is intentionally misspelled to prevent easy searching "GRID" instead of "GUID" and our favorite mod made some disparaging comments afterward.
It seems my posts were deemed offtopic and I was banned from Mozillazine for a week with the message displayed by the board as:

I am shocked and dismayed at this latest treatment as I have been a member of that forum since 2005 and have never broken a rule there.
Regardless, beware! It has gotten to a point where anything related to Pale Moon may be punishable.
