Do you regret unjustly firing Brendan Eich for not being a PC scumbag like the rest of you?

hi, not sure if this "question" warrants an objective response. however, you should at least get you facts straight: brendan eich was never fired by mozilla! https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2014/04/05/faq-on-ceo-resignation/ https://blog.gerv.net/2014/04/your-ire-is-misdirected/

also closing the topic since it is no request for technical support as per our Forum rules and guidelines

Do you regret unjustly firing Brendan Eich

Do you honestly think Mozilla would fire one of the Mozilla project co-founders (other is Mitchell Baker) for a prop 8 donation he made years earlier in 2008 that was public knowledge due to laws in California. Mozilla did not want him to leave and they hoped he would go back to being CTO or work in another position when the attacks started after he moved to CEO position

Nobody at or outside of Mozilla had any issues with him being CTO or any other positions. When he became CEO all hell broke lose outside of Mozilla in attacks towards him and Mozilla from individuals and groups (like OkCupid) that should know better. Even employees who were lgbt supported Brendan as CEO yet those lgbt employees who did so publicly got attacked even with several death threats to show how serious things got from outside attackers.

Problem was once he left as his way of helping Mozilla so many people jumped to the wrong conclusion that he was fired just as you did.

If he had not made that Prop 8 contribution or if it was not public knowledge, he would perhaps still be CEO of Mozilla.
