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.

What about the religious right wingnuts

They are presumably a small minority of FF users.

The normal actions of a private citizen will ALWAYS offend SOMEBODY... that's not a reason for someone to lose their job; and if it is, nobody will have jobs.

"private citizen" being the key word here. As I wrote in another comment, the moment he donated an amount large enough to be on the list, he was no longer private. And nobody even objected while he was CTO; but being c*E*o is a different thing, and far removed from "just an employee" or "private citizen" or whatever. Something that has been broadly pointed out elsewhere in this thread.
