Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

If I go to http://www.lotus.com/lotusphere in Firefox, it redirects to http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/lotusphere and shows a completely blank page.  If I go there in Internet Explorer, it redirects to http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/events/govfor.nsf/wdocs/ls2006home, and show the Lotusphere page.  If I go to http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/events/govfor.nsf/wdocs/ls2006home directly in Firefox, it displays just fine.

What could be wrong with the redirect from  http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/lotusphere to http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/events/govfor.nsf/wdocs/ls2006home, and how could IBM leave this as a problem, given that lots of people who are interested in Lotusphere use Firefox, being the technologically savvy and Microsoft-bashing folks that they are.  I thought it was a fluke a week ago, but it is still the case today.  I guess I'll write to Rocky and ask if he can do something about it.

Problem resolved.  Not sure what the original problem was, as I tried on three machines and it failed on all last week, but whatever it was, it now works if I clear my cache.  Phew!  IBM has confirmed that the problem is resolved as well.
