    Sorry you have posted in the wrong place.

    This is a discussion area for articles editors.

    In fact it is probably not really a very appropriate subject to post about as this is a site to support Mozilla software. The only place it would be appropriate is the off topic section of the forum. That is here:

    I am unable to move posts from this section to the off topics section. You could consider copying your post and reposting it yourself.

    I can not leave the post here, but I will not delete it until next week so you have a chance to copy it, in case you wish to reuse it elsewhere.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
