    That's all you have to do. Do it, and all of this will go away like a bad dream.

    then it seems he stepped down

    now i havent looked up many articles on this YET but so far i see ZERO issue with this, why should I?
    has any of this changed yet?
    is there any evidence Mozilla did anything illegal?

    You made a claim, I asked you to support it.

    I posted a peer reviewed journal article discussing it, in regard to SEC and personal disclosure. You tried to read it and it was too complicated?

    Yeah, the old "freedom of speech only applies to government and does not give you freedom from the consequences" excuse. Freedom of speech is a universal right that can be infringed upon by anyone, not just government. People like you are basically saying, "Hey, you have every right to hold whatever personal beliefs you want, but if we ever found out you believe something we do not like we also have the right to use every means at our disposal to destroy your career and reputation so that anyone with personal beliefs we do not like will think twice before expressing such beliefs ever again, even in private! Freedom of speech, mother****er!" At that point freedom of speech becomes little more than lip service as you really just have a mob deciding what people can and can not say. The defense that "no one is stopping him from holding such beliefs nor is anyone arresting him for holding such beliefs" is not seeing the forest for the trees. People are being threatened and intimidated into silence. To say that is not a threat to freedom of speech betrays a lack of respect for the spirit of our rights.

    So in other words, freedom of speech is freedom from consequence? I can get up on a soapbox at work and scream "I HATE BLACK PEOPLE" and if I were fired, it would be infringing on my freedom of speech?

    What are the first four words of the First Amendment?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I don't think they did anything illegal.

    I'm curious what he did in his brief tenure as the Mozilla CEO that changed the positive atmosphere that members of the LGBT community who worked at Mozilla enjoyed. And has anyone found out what he did while CTO of Mozilla that hurt anyone in the company who was gay?
