Why is there a lizard in my hard drive? chromatic writes: "The Protozilla team has responded to the earlier Slashdot article with answers to some common questions."

Do you feel reading Bugtrak makes it easier to talk to people?

Stop kicking, stop kicking! A nameless shirker writes: "More 'clarifications' from Linuxgruven CEO Matthew Porter can be found during a recent discussion on the Kansas Linux and Unix Users Association(KULUA) mailing list. His answers were very evasive to what were considered very straightforward (if direct) questions.

Other discussion on this topic before and after Porter's response can be found near near the bottom of the following archive thread page.
