    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.
    No, he was held accountable to a set of opinions that were recently established.

    I am not aware of the "eat me" attitude he took. At least I didn't see that in the article. Perhaps you could enlighten me.

    Frankly, given the issue and the outrageous way people have acted towards those who joined the majority in passing Prop 8, I'd probably tell the PC police more than "eat me" in response.

So if he says that CEOs are required to do X, then that's the way it is and you had better adjust yourself to reality, Missy.

    This is taking an unnecessarily pedantic approach.

    I am not aware of the "eat me" attitude he took. At least I didn't see that in the article. Perhaps you could enlighten me.

    Whether or not you agree with the content of Eich's response, it was extremely combative. And whether or not you agree taking a combative approach was the right thing to do, you can at least agree that it ended with him losing his job. I believe a different approach would have been wiser.

    Frankly, given the issue and the outrageous way people have acted towards those who joined the majority in passing Prop 8, I'd probably tell the PC police more than "eat me" in response.
    Yes, Eich clearly went for that option, and he is now no longer CEO.

    Care to link to my post where that comment exists, or admit you're lying?

    In this case, it's pure fabrication on his part.

    Nope....it's there in black and white (and you are lying...only 1 person agreed with you and that was before my examples)

    I'll just humiliate you with it over there tho (I dont like dishonesty). Again, no need to distract people here....oh wait! Werent you going to answer my question regarding your claim in this thread? (It's right here tho, for anyone interested: http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...-433-a-92.html)

    No? Here....

    Diversity should be celebrated, unless you don't agree with me then I'm going to get you removed from your job. I find it ridiculous that open records laws, designed to prevent government corruption, are being used to harm private citizens not involved in corrupt activity. I have a hard time respecting groups who abuse anti-corruption laws for their own gain.

    This type of abuse will do more to stifle political involvement than any voter ID law ever could.

    There's nothing to deny, since no where does that comment exist in any of my posts.

    Want to keep playing reaindeer games, or address comments that I actually posted?
