Mozilla & Gecko clones

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn't live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it's because we haven't stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you'd expect Mozilla to act. We didn't move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We're sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He's made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

The only sensible move.

I differenciate homosexuals in general from certain organizations or pressure groups. Why does this disqualify me? I see very clearly the difference.

Perhaps, but "gay lobby" is just as bad as "the gay agenda", and puts you squarely in the anti-gay camp. Also, in a discussion about what happened to Eich, randomly complaining about "Anything you say against the gay lobby makes you a racist" and then rant about how "many residents are fed up with the problems caused by the "Gay Pride Day"" makes you look like a generic homophobe.
