There are no signs of the Mozilla board even trying to haul themselves out of the pit they dug for themselves. Too bad.
So, you've tracked another dissident and skinned him alive. You've made an example of Brendan Eich, and now you dance joyously around his disemboweled carcass. You have his head on a spike, and you consider this a conquest in your eternal crusade to eradicate diversity and punish differing opinions. You launched your millionth campaign of intimidation, and now another good man has been dragged through the mud, to the sounds of taunting and jeering and death threats.
Eich's greatest contribution to combating gay rights militants didn't come in the form of a paltry donation to Prop 8 -- it came through his work developing the medium that makes censorship nearly impossible. I'm not saying that was his motivation, but it's the result. You can boycott Reality TV shows and fast food restaurants all you want, but you can't shutdown the internet.
For all its downside, the internet still gives voice to people who would be otherwise silenced by oppressors like yourselves. Take yours truly, for example. I'm just one dude -- insignificant and unimportant -- but there are many like me. I'm not employed by any major corporation. I'm not employed at all, in fact. You can't get me fired; I work for myself. The Matt Walsh Blog
Yesterday I uploaded Pale Moon to use as my new browser. "Pale Moon is an Open Source, Firefox-based web browser for Microsoft Windows, focusing on efficiency and ease of use." After about five hours of use I have yet to find a difference in them. Shocked and pleased.
