Let me just start off by saying that I love iloveubuntu.net, I subscribe to their RSS feed and read if pretty regularly, as regularly as I read any other feed. I have a great deal of respect for razvi and the writing he does for that site, and I would never mean any disrespect to him.
So what happened? When I started my UbBloPoMo project, one of the things I said I would do was write a post in the evening, and schedule it to publish the following day. That is what I’ve done for every post this month, and the last one was no exception. I had written my article, and scheduled it to publish at 4am my local time (9am UTC), and at that point in time I was unaware of razvi’s editorial on the same subject (which may or may not have been published by the time I wrote mine).
My choice in headline was in no way a reference to his. In fact, I chose the wording specifically because it wasn’t similar to any other headline for any other article I had read yesterday, so that nobody would feel like I was singling them out in particular. Of all the different ways a headline could have been worded, it was just a matter of random chance (or dump luck on my part) that mine and his were as similar as they were.
I still stand by what I said, about Mozilla and about us as a community. But I wanted to apologize to razvi for the confusion and hurt feelings caused by my headline. And to reiterate, I still love iloveubuntu.net, I still have a great deal of respect for razvi, and I will continue making his site part of my regular news reading.
