Right, this Jim Hu guy, that contributed to the zdnet article, is a good
example of a journalist that just doesn't seem to want to make this better.

Peter has contacted him on several occasions about mistakes in his
news.com.com.com articles and it seems he got so pissed off that we
dared to suggest he doesn't get it, that he hasn't written one article on
Jabber since (or XMPP for that matter).

Furthermore, I haven't seen any new arguments in this thread compared to the
flame fest a while ago, and we just have a number of people who dislike
using the name Jabber and a number of people who just love it.

There has been a vote on the JSF name change and that's that. Suggesting that
we do not use the expanded form of our name or even not using Jabber on the
site is in the same realm. It won't happen.

If you really hate Jabber Inc.'s use of the name Jabber, make sure the name is
so widespread that they don't matter anymore.

Please, can we just go on building stuff instead of having this discussion
every few months?
