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 am all in favour of dialogue, but somebody's sex life is their private matter. If *they* want, one can even talk to them, tell them that is wrong, immoral, against the Bible... But paying somebody who wants to limit their rights is a totally different matter.
