Now then, I’d like to say that I applaud bringing awareness to this issue, but we’re preaching to the choire. Preventing users from getting support and reading gnome.org and Planet GNOME will only serve to piss off the users. They might read the message, but I doubt they’d be any more receptive to it. Everyone who does care probably already knows about it.
The message at the top is good, and we should draw attention to it, but please, let’s let people actually see the sites. This does not look professional.
I’d like to point out that there are some good blog entries about this subject on Planet GNOME that people are missing due to the blackout.
And with that…
(This is directed to Planet GNOME. It doesn’t make sense anywhere else.)
