    Right , there are consequences to our actions, and now this includes how we vote or what cause we contribute to. Questions will be raised about your personal lives, who your friends are and how much money you have in your wallet. All this is becoming normal and being defended by those of a leftist persuasion.

    Such bull-hockey. At will employment leaves the door wide open for people to get fired for far more than a political cause one contributes toward. I've the feeling the latter doesn't factor much into the many firings happening on a daily basis. It's rare to hear the same rules that apply to regular workers may also apply to CEOs, but it seems so in this case. He'll probably fare far better than any average joe. Perhaps, the answer could be to give protection to everyone from such firings? I doubt that is even a plausible solution but thought I'd throw it out there so you could at least see that at best there seems to be a double standard being applied and at worst some people are fine with that because they've been properly groomed to feed off of such hype.

    They did vet him. So much so this was PUBLIC knowledge to the board going back 2 years.

    And Mozilla isn't a company that relies on emotional buy, rather anti-Microsoft Internet Explorer mentality.

    5.) sure do, again let me know when you are ready to discuss the topic and defend your failed stance
    It's this simple. I am actually arguing and pointing out removing the standard of marriage which one (LBGT community) wants and the other (straight community) wants to keep for themselves. Then replacing it with just plain old Civil Unions and stating the State (Government) will only recognize Civil Unions. For the part of my argument you aren't getting is Marriage won't exist as a legal accepted form of relationship. Only Civil Unions will.

    I use a mac, and I choose Mozilla over Safari in spit of Firefox's massive memory leak, mostly for the reason that Firefox isn't a giant anti-privacy monster.

    I used Mozilla products since the Netscape days. Always had problems getting viruses thru MS products.

    Mozilla didn't do anything illegal but the social sensitivity towards tolerance is a two way door. You got to give a little, to get a little.

    If republicans stopped claiming such a high bar as their own, this wouldn't even be an issue.
