    Perhaps. We do have very polarizing politics. I think it's unfortunate since both parties have a right to their beliefs and political freedom of pushing policy and protesting policy. No one is inherently wrong. With that said there is always a price we pay for living in a democracy and I wouldn't have it any other way. Unfortunately, this will only lead to a push for less transparency because money buys power. I'm a realist and acknowledge not much good will be won out of this case. The protestors may have won this battle but not necessarily the war.

    Fighting (or in my case arguing) for the rights of a minority is going to piss certain people off. It's to be expected.

    the gay movement was given a little power and it took them all of 5 minutes to become hair-trigger mccarthyists. bodes well for the future doesn't it?

    No it doesn't bode well at all. Mark my words, in ten years we'll all have to be gay.

    Personally, I think that while Mozilla and its employees had a right to do as they did, they made a mountain out of a molehill. It's true that Eich did not bring his politics with him into the workplace (that we know of), and it required digging just to uncover his contribution to Prop 8. That said, Eich didn't have to go into war mode as he did. Him losing his job was spectacularly avoidable. Personally, I think there are no winners here - literally everyone walks away looking kind of petty.

    As Ecofarm said, there just has to be more to this story. It doesn't make rational sense that Eich would be pushed out for this and this alone. I don't accept it.

    I agree. Probably no winners and ultimately we will lose more transparency. Of course, that's speculation on my behalf. I hope I'm wrong.

    I was just reading some commentary and, if it was correct, then it appears that it's perfectly legal to fire people for their political beliefs. We've long known that media and academia don't hire, block promotion and do fire on the basis of political beliefs but now the Left has blown away all their plausible deniability that this is a favored tactic. I'm damn sure that those normal people who didn't subscribe to 100% politicization of EVERYTHING (they're normal people after all, not Leftists) are now learning a lesson - eat or be eaten.
    Damn, I guess you have never seen a negative political ad then.
