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.

We're having witch hunts now? Is this north korea? The PC Police crowd is so "tolerant" and "inclusive" as long as their opinion is the only one around. Wow such freedoms. Many progress. "Freedom of speech for all" as long as you only say things we like. This shit is going to be the fall of western civilization, enjoy the ride while it lasts people.

Yeah, you are being totally coherent here. Because a public outcry over a homophobe becoming CEO of the world's #3 browser resulting in him stepping down is totally comparable to a Stalinistic regime with religious leader worship responsible for the death of millions of its citizens.

Yes, because in both cases you're getting fucked over for not toeing the current party line.

Wow. Equating the millions of people being slaughtered by Stalin to not accepting racism and bigotry.

Did a homosexual man or woman step on your kitten or something?
