The manager of the Open Addict forums (a very popular site for Open Source and Free Software advocates and users) has implemented a block on all Internet Explorer users for compliance and maintenance reasons.

In his words:

“Well, believe it or not, most people coming to our site are using Windows and IE. This could hurt out traffic potentially, but I’m just fed up with IE rendering issues. So if you’re an IE user, I hope you’re not offended by any of this – it’s nothing against you as a user. Just please install and use Firefox or Opera if you use Windows. Better yet, use Linux and all of your dreams will come true.”

Wow, the shoe is definitely on the other foot now, maybe this will inspire other sites to “Just Say NO” to IE in all it’s forms. Get FireFox now, and join the revolution.
