Re: Mozilla Kerala Portal Project

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.214.181

I never asked anyone to comment my reply. I did thing in Mozilla to my
freedom limits and capabilities. I am just asking people reading this to
"DO" something rather spamming here.

And shine, please stop thanking me. Its really irritating in this
situation. It feel like u want me to do everything. I just wanted everyone
to contribute in this. I don't want a solo project since this is a
"community".

Despite of all my other works, If no one take any interest in doing thing
rather than talking about it, I'll take one more effort to finish this
project on 27th April 2015. If i finish doing that... shine, please do not
talk to me like "thank you for doing it bro". I'm starting to hate this.
Seriously shine, u talk too much without understanding things to be done.

I'll not comment this thread until someone do something or April 27. That's
all. Bye.
