Call for contributors

So I've come very, very slowly to the conclusion spotted already by many out there: I just don't fucking update this often enough. IE sucks hard in more ways than I can keep up with on my own, especially now that we have IE8 making its way out to the real world of standards, and the IE team takes its sweet fucking time sweeping IE6 out of our goddamn way once and for all. Seriously, IE7 doesn't amount to much more than IE6 with a roll of duct tape and tabs, but IE6? That broken piece of shit fell into our laps over seven motherfucking, agonizing years ago. Put that shit in a sack and toss it the fuck out while going 80 miles an hour on I-40 through a nice, long stretch of desert where we'll never have to see it again.

But I digress.

If you want to contribute, send it to and I'll post it with as much or as little attribution as you want, using your real name or a pseudonym so some smart-ass fucking interviewer or manager doesn't wave a printed up copy of it under your nose with a raised eyebrow (or pink slip, depending). If things go well, I'll invite some people through this thing in order to grant write permission directly to the blog itself.

I know some of you out there, especially the evangelists, have venting you need to get out of your system and I want to give you the chance to do so, loudly, and without fear of it coming back to haunt you.

I know some of you out there, especially the designers and developers, want people to know what you think about IE's complete and utter lack of support for 90% of what you want or need to do.

Let's hear it.
