The Exclusive Inclusive Club

DiversityYou’ve got to wonder if Mozilla (mitchell) even read her response to Eich’s resignation because a lot of words were used that I don’t think the meaning of is understood.
DIVERSITY noun
:  an instance of being composed of differing elements or qualities :  an instance of being diverse <a diversity of opinion>
:the state or fact of being diverse; difference; unlikeness: diversity of opinion.

in·clu·sive
: covering or including everything
: open to everyone : not limited to certain people

“Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech.”
as long as it is in agreement with their view.

“Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness.”
There are those words again.

This is the most hypocritical inane statement I’ve ever read.

…a little background:
Online match-making site OkCupid openly protested the use of the Firefox web browser amid revelations of Eich’s anti-gay stance (NOT anti-gay, he just gave $1,000 on Prop. 8 in support of marriage being defined as between a man and a woman)and offered users links to download several alternatives, affirming its philosophical support of gay marriage and the same-sex couples that make up eight-percent of its business. It stopped short, however, of urging a ban on JavaScript, which Eich invented AND which is  required for the OkCupid website to function.
