    Meh, Cardinal first pointed it out to me. The offense is so slight that I'm inclined to believe there were other things that have not been disclosed. Or that they went after him for another reason.

    No, I'm pretty sure the bad guy is the CEO who failed to fully disclose his activities in the interview process. That's fraud.

    I think it's just the issue. Certain subjects are so taboo to oppose that it draws out the "outrage" police. Most of society are politically becoming, over sensitive nutjobs.

    You mean like Eich left his politics at home? Lesson learned. Voter registration data is open to the public just like the Prop 8 donations database was open to the public. The lesson that is learned here is that it doesn't matter that you keep your views on marriage out of the workplace and only express them at the ballot box, by voting for your beliefs you've injected your views into the world, just like Democrats who register and vote are now no longer keeping their political views to themselves and so it's now open season for firing Democrats for being registered Democrats or donating to Democrats.

    Thanks Totalitarian Liberals, these new rules might actually work well to the benefit of normal people.

    Well, there really wouldn't have been any way to avoid some sort of compromise -- that was never on the menu. If I had been in his place, I guess what I might have tried was something along the lines of, "Yes, I supported prop 8, and now that it's been brought up I have to be completely honest that I don't regret it. That being said, it should also be noted that I have never brought my politics into Mozilla, don't intend to, and respect the image that Mozilla wants to project. It is my full intention to behave professionally in accordance with that belief because I think Mozilla is a great company and I can put aside my beliefs while helping to push Mozilla forward without drama. And you can expect that so long as I work here I will, as I have done, not do anything to reflect on Mozilla that will in any way change that spirit.

    Or something like that. It could be worded better but you get the point. It would have been worth a shot if nothing else.

    If a conservative, religious, company hired a CEO after asking him if there was anything in his personal life that could harm the company's image, and he tells them it's all good, and he turns out to be a drag queen... that's cool? They're stuck with him? Bull****. He committed fraud in the hiring process.

    As -the- representative of the company, a CEO's personal life is on the table in the hiring process and he CLEARLY failed to disclose pertinent information.

    Believe it or not, I largely agree with you. Eich did for all appearances do exactly that and left his politics at home. And for that reason he could have easily diffused the situation. Instead he took a "Eat it, bitches!" approach and, well, the rest is history.

    Horse cookies. Are you saying he should've been fired for being a drag queen in his private life?

    Personal life, should be just that "personal", as long as it doesn't interfere with business.

    We're not talking about a cashier, Grip. A CEO's personal life is absolutely on the table in the hiring process because he serves as -the- representative of the company.

    He failed to disclose. It's fraud.

    Zebra fritters. Nobody should be held to that kind of invasive scrutiny, it's inhuman.
