    It doesn't matter with cashiers, but it matters with CEOs.

    Correct, not legal, nor would a candidate be obligated to answer...it's very subjective. Esp. for something like Mozilla.

    You cant ask if a woman is pregnant or ever plans to be pregnant or if she even has kids now.

    You *may not ask personal questions* if they are not directly applicable to the person's ability to do the job. (nothing about how they reflect 'on' the job)

    I think it's the other way around. They fired the CEO, now they are assholes.

    Sources please.

    And we're back to square one.

    In a way, you are right, but it is not legal to ask it...the employer is obligated to discover it on their own if that is a concern.

    People complained. Eventually OKCupid put up a splash page talking about it. Enough anger was stirred up that this decision was made. Mozilla didn't go digging for this, their customers did.

    Perhaps in some rare cases, but more often than not, that's really counter productive to productivity, workforce moral, turnover, etc.

    If that's your opinion and your leadership style, are you now leading an organization? How well does it perform?
