I first heard rumblings about MozillaZine's spam problem well over 18 months ago, and I fail to understand why it still hasn't been dealt with. There's no excuse for that. FattMattP has a point about MozillaZine news being a joke, because it is. It's embarrassing when software updates are reported on well after the fact (the TB update is a perfect example). I learn more about what's going on by browsing the forums then going to MZ's home page. To say the latter is out of date would be an understatement.
