    Given what you have already posted, I was curious if you believed that to be the case even if it involved political groups you disagreed with (and the notion does seem to annoy you some). As far as management promoting/demoting at their own discretion, you're saying you fully support that? If a person is not promoted because they are gay, hey, that's just the manager's discretion?

    Which is why I included "pressure". Ok, let me cut to the chase. Your approval of a company's actions in pressuring a person to resign based on their off the job political actions are not dependent on the cause itself, is that fair to say? If you feel the company was within it's rights in this case, to act as they did, you would also support another company's rights to do the same even if the person pressured to resign was engaged in politics you actually agreed with, wouldn't you?

    Well I can agree that as long as it's something that applies across the board then it's reasonable. Obviously such things shouldn't be dependent on the "right" content of the speech or action.

    You want a broad answer and there is none. It depends on the situation whether it is a good idea to act on something like this. A CEOs actions are going to matter than Joe Linerat. Who the customers of the company matters(Richard Dawkins would probably be a bad CEO for a company that sold bibles) and a ton of other variables. So basically I cannot give you a nice, cut and dry simple answer.

    From your response, what I am answering and what you think I answered are two different things.

    Aren't you contradicting your previous post?

    No I didn't. I said we uninstalled Mozilla.
