We have posted this before, but this needs to be reiterated.
We understand that many of you are emotionally driven to discuss your feelings on recent events, most notably the repeal of Net Neutrality - however inciting violence towards others is never ok. It is upsetting that we even have to post this.
Do we enjoy banning people for these types of offences? No... Many of us feel as if the system has failed and want some form of repercussion. But threats of violence and harassment are not the answer here.
And to be clear - here are some examples of what will get you banned:
I hope this PoS dies in a car fire
I want to punch him in the face til his teeth fall out
And if you are trying to be slick by using this form
I never condone violence but...
I would never say he should die but...
Im not one to wish death upon but...
Let's keep the threads civil.
If you violate this rule, you will be banned for 30 days, no exceptions

Furthermore, it seems from 1 that Mozilla purposefully provides no easy opt-out mechanism for users and organizations who don't want to participate in this type of telemetry.
We decided to block Mozilla domains completely and only unblock them when updating the browser and plugins. I wanted to share this with all of you so that you don't get caught off-guard like we have. (It seems that even reputable open-source software can't be trusted these days.)
