    It takes an idiot to believe that absolute terms mean anything but, absolute.

    Consider the source. He believes that if a politician contributes to the Nazi Party his constituency has no right to vote him out in the next election.

    looks like the younger generations on all ideologies are shifting towards acceptance. Younger folks being the most tech oriented, it was a good move on mozilla's part.

    Yep, oh I am well aware, how could they not move towards tolerance? They're stupid kids, just like you and I were at one time. They are constantly bombarded with rhetorical accusations of homophobe or bigot and as a result completely unarmed when it comes to countering that time tested tactic. Not to mention that they're not getting the truth, and I mean the whole truth about the debate from their schools, or their other peers. They're being force-fed propaganda and eventually like we all know, effective propaganda will win out. My God Hitler used it to turn an entire nation on the only people that were responsible for keeping their economy afloat, and they turned their blind eye to the mass extinction of these people all because of a few well placed, and well timed propagandized hit pieces. People believe what they're told, mostly, and only the inquisitive and not lazy one's seek the truth for themselves. Now, I've had my say about homosexuality and this topic ad infinitum and I do not care to waste anymore time discussing with you. Turning to the OP, and like I said, regardless of what the true numbers are, the fact is that a great many people choose one ideology over another, and to some, like me, have both the conviction and the well withal to make buying choices based on the behavior of companies that I deem are behaving cowardly, or hypocritically. If companies want to keep that trend up, we'll all be shopping on different sides of the street.

    Try me.
    It would seem that Eich was held accountable to a set of opinions. Nothing more. That the PC police have established new ground rules doesn't change the dangerous nature of the precedent they have decided to establish.

    As to your shoe issue, why would I want to point to something in history based on a statement you made I don't agree with? You wrote I am advocating no accountability and requested I show a point in history where no accountability existed. I rejected your point, and I guess had fun with the eat your shoe offer.

    Why? That a $1000 campaign contribution could result in the effective termination of a person isn't equally laughable? Boy you have it backwards, CT, but you're gay so I suppose selective tolerance is always the par for the course with you types.

    No, he was accountable for a set of opinions. He was accountable to his company.

    It's all really silly, though. As I've said before I believe he could have diffused the situation easily. One political contribution years ago is not the end of the world, but he blew it up with an "eat me" approach when he was well aware that his beliefs ran contrary to the image the company was trying to project.

    Normally, I would presume someone is misconstruing another's words with such a claim.
