    Mozilla is itself a non-profit (technically a wholly owned for-profit subsidiary of a non-profit, but it amounts to the same thing). It doesn’t have much of a cash hoard and is unlikely to ever amass one. One with an international and charitable missing written into its charter.

    The people that brought down Eich were by and large volunteers who were not interested in volunteering for an organization lead by a bigot (the user boycott was a much less important consideration than the developer one). Not because they were afraid that mozilla qua mozilla would donate to some US political campaign, which is facially absurd.

    The people who did the firing are still around and they’re perfectly capable of speaking for themselves, so there’s no need to speculate about what they might have thought about the future. They and OK Cupid got themselves into this mess, so let them get themselves out.

    Brad, calling someone a “bigot” for donating money to a political campaign that was supported by the majority of voters shows closed mindedness on your part.

    I don’t see why a majority of voters in a given state can’t be bigots.
