    What if the CEO of Google Chrome secretly hates gays? I guess the only way to have a clue is if Chrome doesn't display pink very well.

    No. American, what on Earth are you talking about? I said we uninstalled Firefox and encouraged friends and family to do the same.

    Eh, it is HIS company....He can do whatever he wants with it.... That you think he can't is disturbing.

    I made a mistake in that post. We UNinstalled Mozilla. I think that was pretty clear from my other posts in this thread. May I ask why you've singled me out for making a mistake on one post?

    I was responding to someone else.

    By going after a mistake I made in that post, when it seemed clear to that "someone else" and everyone else who read my posts that we uninstalled it?

    But my husband & I both installed Mozilla and have gotten some of our friends and family to do the same. I also will never support any company that advertises on Firefox.

    Mozilla owns this now.
    Obviously I meant we UNinstalled Mozilla. I can't edit my post but I'm bringing it back to clear it up for anyone who didn't understand that it was a mistake.

    My question is really a simple one. I think it's always helpful, in order to determine if your positions are based on principle or simply rooting for your own team, is to envision a set of circumstances in which it's someone on your side of things that was treated the same way as what happened here. Would you reach the same conclusion or does your answer change if the leans or the views of person involved changes? Your reluctance to answer that is an answer in and of itself. I don't mean that to be accusatory, I think we're all prone to employ double standards from time to time and, really, would we spend so much time arguing our positions if we didn't truly believe them to be, well, just more right?

    Incorrect - by your own admission what is being targeted is his speech.

    Let me flip it: you are free to believe what you want, but if you vote for anyone other than a Republican, you deserve to be targeted.
