    He was not in the workplace. He made a private donation.

    Because of LGBT boycotts, sure. I don't fault Mozilla, they were backed into a corner on the whole thing.

    Nor do I blame Eich for exercising his free speech. I don't even blame the LGB group for exercising theirs, but when all this results in someone being forced from employment, their livelihood, I feel justified in my concern about this precedent. Who get's to lose their job next?

    People can get fired for having the wrong political bumper sticker on a car. What happened to Eich is nothing new so don't understand the outrage with it but not the outrage with the real issue of people not having free speech rights in private business.

    I know, it's fascist behavior on display and anyone really concerned about rights should take heed.

    I don't consider my right to free speech infringed though, I consider that I made the best choice available to me.
    That's fine because that is not having a double standard if you hold that same standard to this Eich case.

    And you don't get to decide what customers care about.

    On the contrary, I think people on all sides of this question should simply be let alone so long as they don't act against the rights of others. I myself support SSM. I was not aware you asked a question. I only heard the shouting. What was the question?
