    I'll keep that in mind when you violate the free speech of people like Michael Mann.

    What is being claimed is that this is not an exercise of free speech ie. the supporters of gay marriage in this company were not allowing Eich to have a dissenting opinion-- he MUST support gay marriage else he is out the door,
    Bull****. People have been claiming that for more than 100 pages now.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    So people in private workplaces have fewer rights and it's OK to abridge them? That doesn't sound right (accurate/lawful) to me.

    1.) well then you should be fine with this because nobody acted against the rights of others
    2.) meanignless to the topic but that nice that you support equal rights
    3.) i only referred to it the last 3-4 posts lol

    and all you should have heard is laughing but that further explains why your posts are failing. The debate you are having in your head and anything i am actually saying is different.

    In fact Michael Mann is suing someone else for speaking freely. That's hardly a good example.

    None, I was referring to the furor over Mozilla as a result (at least this was the audience I was attempting to speak to). My personal view is what Eich did was not my business, but irregardless of that, when looking at what I see as the rules that govern society and social dynamics (including legal ones) I see no gross violation from anyone or any group either.

    Still doesn't make it any more just. Just means that there is more unjust in the world.
    Legislating it away? I don't know if that's even possible.

    got it
    your ready to answer my question or you still gonna dodge
    Eich used his freedom of speech-- he took "actions." remember? You said that about 20 minutes ago. He should have stayed quiet.
    Now you are complaining about what this actually means in practice. A quick learning curve, it seems.

    And, this has been my point each time I have responded to you. People in private business fire people for having dissenting opinions all the time.
