I just heard that Brendan Eich has resigned as CEO of Mozilla, and the reasons are not exactly what one expects. Especially when it is impaired by retrograde thoughts, and actions that don’t respect the beliefs and values of a person, and worst, calling for respect for different ways of thinking and not respect them. You think that boycotting Mozilla Firefox is the solution?… You think you win?… We all lose!
This is simple. Mozilla is not democracy, but meritocracy. Brendan Eich is definitely the person who has won, which has the own right to be appointed CEO of Mozilla, far beyond his thoughts and ideas on other issues independent and totally out of what Mozilla is and really means for Mozillians and the world.
I support Mozilla and the Mozilla community, the will and the philosophy that follow, Mozilla has been and is a leader in the struggle for a free and open web, and much of this achievement has been made by the community that formed, community composed by anyone only and only be fulfilled for a feature: The desire to collaborate! and this does not exclude anyone with different ways of thinking, therefore, why discriminate in this way to a man in his own right who made ??it to where it was?
I Respect the decision he took, and always support his work. I just hope Brendan Eich continue collaborating with Mozilla, I think it was and is a fundamental part of achieving Mozilla.
