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.

If you don't see a problem with punishing people for private beliefs and opinions different than yours than I don't know what to tell you. Welcome to the age of thought-crime.

By donating to Prop 8 it left the private area. By doing so he made a *public* statement, as the donation entered public records, for all to see. He didn't just "think" something, he *acted* on it.

If you don't see that there are many, many examples of when it's entirely justified to "punish" people for private believes, you are simply a moron.

Well, I've explained why that *is* anybody's fucking business, but you seem to have pulled up a reason resistance shield, so I'll just give up on you.

But I know, with you rabid SJW types him being a heterosexual white christian male would is crime enough in itself.

Bla bla bla.
