Sorry i don't see the point of having to change my whole way of doing
business on the internet just to be part of this. not to mention if
you are on a unix box you have no choice but to use netscape. so yes
at least for me (and 2 or 3 other people i know) this will keep us
from collaborating. to me its not collaboration if i have to be
coorced into using the tools someone else prefers. its your site and
you are perfectly free (and i am sure will) disregard this ;-)
