    ... is pathetic when advocacy is the main agenda:

    "We recommend you to do a free upgrade to one of the updated browsers bellow:"

    The list is not *below* either - it's just to the right.

    The other side of the coin might be, perhaps, that "English" is simply not the author/creators primary language. The beauty of open source is that you are free to go ahead and translate/correct/punctuate or just "fix it" however you like.

    Just getting is right would be the expedient route. We're not talking about a preference and we're not talking about tricky technical obstacles. The primary vehicle by which this plugin does its job is the written word. It's sloppy. Sloppy people will install it and use it without modification - therefore the impact from an *advocacy* point of view will be negative.

    Really? Your written word or that of another culture/language?

    I think that your persistent use of the word "advocacy", combined with your historical penchant for posting predominantly negative commentary on the functionality of various plugins indicates that perhaps you should "put-up", or "shut-up".

    Let me clarify my thoughts just for the sake of consistency:

    A) If you don't like a particular plugin, don't use it.

    B) If you can do better, write your own plugin and share them with the community.

    Your opinion on "Advocacy" is neither relevant nor founded.

    therefore the impact from an *advocacy* point of view will be negative.

    You sir, or Madame, are speaking out of your back-side.

    Best wishes.

    Hi!

    My name is “MAC” and I'm the author of the “NoMoreIE6” plugin.

    I was doing a minor upgrade when I noticed these posts about it, I had no idea!

    First i'd like to say, I'm happy to find some people spending their precious time discussing my work! I'm flattered!

    Of course in a second reading my feelings divide. :)

    I'll address my comments to “toolz” first:

    When I put my effort to produce my simple plugins I intend to solve occasional problems in my daily routine as a professional developer, and if on doing so I can also help someone with a similar problem, great! I'll do it and share my plugins to everybody who want's to use them.

    But that's it. Like ClaytonJames said, they are intended for people who wants them, if you don't like it, don't use it. Period.

    Did I mention, at any moment, that this plugins was perfect, or the best plugin ever? No!
    It was simply the best I could do or had the time to do at that moment. I ask nothing in return, so why complain or criticize negatively?! - Suggestions and improvements are always welcome though!

    And you're right “toolz”: -"English" is simply not the author/creators primary language. But he can (roughly) manage. And besides English, he (roughly) manages to speak 3 other foreign languages other than his native Portuguese, and the international “language of Love” - said like “Pepe-le-pew” would! :)

    I'm not ashamed, at all, if occasionally my grammar is not perfect. Tough luck! :)

    To ClaytonJames a special “thank you!” for being fair, open minded, not prejudicious and most of all understanding open source and the honest effort people put in their work, for free.

    Cheers!

    MAC

    Good plugin and thank you. How do I get it to show on IE7 as well?
