OkCupid bashes Firefox CEO
OkCupid is taking a stand.
OkCupid is taking a stand, said Sam Biddle in Valleywag.com. The popular dating website greeted visitors with a “protest message” this week, discouraging them from using the Mozilla Firefox browser to access its website. The move comes after reports emerged that Mozilla’s new CEO, Brendan Eich, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage in California. “Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame, and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure,” OkCupid declared in its landing-page post. For the “online dating darling”—which estimates that 8 percent of its users are gay—“actively discouraging traffic for political reasons” sure is “daring.” But then again, “trying to oust a homophobic CEO” may be good business if your business is love.
