    I think you are confused. He was a founder of Mozilla. He was being promoted to CEO. He's been working at Mozilla for years now already.

    Such questions are generally illegal. Very few personal questions are allowed in the hiring process. If you have any sources that prove there is a subset of careers or industries or positions that are exempted from this, please provide them.

    Otherwise the onus is on the employer to discover any conflicts of interest.

If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.

    I'll keep that in mind next time you say anything negative about Michael Mann. Violating his rights, how dare you. If you don't promote AGW, are you going to put him in the stocks?

    Because there are many many things that are not legal to ask when someone is being hired, that's why.

    So you cannot support your claim...just admit it then.

    Lursa. You've been in HR. I think you'd know better than myself, because I don't think so. There are specific questions that the hiring manager(s) and HR people are forbidden to ask of a candidate.

    That's all moot anyway. Eich was a founder of Mozilla, has worked there for years, and was being promoted. At least that's my understanding.

    I don't know why they did it. Something is strange. The guy made a $1000 contribution 6 years ago, and they felt a need to get rid of him because of that? Doesn't add up.

    There's a TON of stuff you may not ask. You absolutely cannot ask about political views or contributions.

    I don't attack MM's livelihood. I dispute his professional claims. The following seems apt.

    “Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
