After reading the replies to this thread I can say it does my heart good to see the vast majority of the people here actually agree it was a really dick move on the commentator's part. Thanks to all of you for restoring some of my faith in humanity and the people who post here. It can get pretty toxic sometimes. Nice to see pretty much everyone agrees Edison needs proscecuted and the asshats making the rude, nasty comments were indeed slugs who needed to crawl back under the rock they came from. THANKS TO ALL YOU ./ POSTERS!

I already told you I believe the poll is corrupt, fake, rigged. Whatever choice of words you choose to use. Semantics. And I speak businessease. In other words you wouldn't hire him because you are afaid he would tell on you for something that isn't..... well lets be nice. Something isn't "just quite right" in your company. It is not about your "intellectual" property or customer list to competitors That has nothing to do with the corruption and violation of the American public he brought light to. Because what he released is what scumbags our government is and what kind of ILLEGAL, corrupt things they do . How THEY stab their friiends in the back. How they violate the Constitution of the United States. So please no pious speech. Funny, that would inclue 90% if not more of the people's resume. Pretty much every human being seeking a job "embellishes" their resume. So if they are capable of doing the job and DO do the job well. I don't care. And I would still hire him and so would many business men I know. I'm 61 and from my many years in business I know quite a few and some are very, very wealthy. What Snowden did was the right thing. Period. The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. TRUTH

Really? How do you know? Have you taken a poll? Have you talked to most business owners in America? Because the poll in question I consider false evidence. I think the majority of business owners would hire him. Unless of course they were corrupt. Are you telling me then that not only is our government corrupt but so are most business owners. Because a honest man would hire him in a heart beat. So pardon me if I find fault with your logic.

Then you'd be wrong. If I still had my ISP service I'd hire him today. Because I know he'd do what is best for this country. Because he actually cares about the American PEOPLE. If he "faces the music" or not is of no consequence what so ever. Chances are extremely good the trial would be rigged as well. I trust the NSA about as far as I can throw the State House. He has suffered, more than you I'd dare say. He does not have to die for him to be a hero. Let me clear something up for you. A hero does not have to die for his country in war time. He makes the OTHER guy die for his. The atrocities that the government has committed against the American people can no longer be tolerated. We need more people who "tell" on them when the violate the law, violate the constitution, and when the violate our basic human rights.

I like your idea a LOT. I agree it is time. They have screwed the public long enough. My friends in other countries call my 24 meg connection "welfare internet" and that I pay 4 times too much for it. As funny as that is, it is also just as true. Now would be a good time to do something. They are FCC is deciding today. I personally have already signed a number of petition to try and save all our asses. I don't know if it will be enough. With everyone's help it might be.

I have to apologize. I was wrong. Upon further investigation into what happened and proof of it. It would appear Mr Eich was in the wrong. While his resignation may or may not be legal or whatever. His attempt to control people's moral/political choices was wrong. I should have looked deeper and normally do. This was my failure to double check the facts. I'm sorry.

OK lets get back to the original question. Do I believe Google bullied Eich into resigning? I think perhaps a better question would be who doesn't? The answer is so obvious they have done everything but put up a neon sign. And since everyone seems so concerned in making the issue about his believe in prop 8, OK. I'll give you MY opinion. EVERYONE deserves the same rights. It is justice for ALL, not except Bob over there. People do not just wake up one day and go "Hey think I'll be gay today!". They are born with that sexual preference. Everyone should be treated fairly and I don't think Mr Eich has been.

Comment The bottom line (Score 1) 440

Irregardless of whatever reason is used to not give the peanut butter to poor hungry people is wrong. Yes I realize how bad our "sue everyone" society is. And that is wrong as well. I realize they want to sell, not give food away. I assure you I realize all the reasonable reasons involved. BUT the bottom line is it is always wrong to destroy good food that people who can't afford to buy it, people that are hungry and need it. We have the technology to feed every human on this planet and for companies to still make a profit. Literally. There is no reason for any child to go to bed hungry in any country. Oh wait there is one. Greed.

I would normally make a long statement but this truly is easy. Prosecute for what? Exposing criminals? He doesn't need pardoned. HE DID NOTHING WRONG. It is NOT a crime to expose criminals performing criminal acts. In fact it is your duty according to the Constitution of the United States. DO YOUR JOB PEOPLE. Thanks. :)

No I am not joking. Given China's history are abusing and murdering it's own citizens, this is a likely suspect. If this is true, it is not only insane. it should be criminal. I may be wrong, if so, someone tell me why they would release this in a nations water supply for any other reason. It is sad we say we live in a age of military/social insanity where atrocities are committed against people in the name of whatever is convenient at the time to blame. It is a shame such a small group of people are so capable of harming so many people. But group mentality has always been that way. A few people can terrorize a large crowd. sigh...........
