Use Firefox? No more Truth Revolt for you...

change browsers, or else.

This is ridiculous.

The message at Truth Revolt:

Hello there, Mozilla Firefox user.​

Pardon this interruption of your TruthRevolt experience. Mozilla recently forced its CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign over his personal support for traditional marriage. The firing followed a vicious smear campaign against Eich by dating website OKCupid, in which OKCupid blocked Mozilla users from visiting their website.
We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access TruthRevolt, given Mozilla’s crackdown on political and religious positions held by millions of Americans.

To sign our petition vowing to uninstall or cease using Mozilla, Mozilla users can still click here.

Going forward we urge you to consider a different web browser for accessing
Here are a few alternatives:
Google Chrome | Safari | Opera | Internet Explorer

  • First of all, I'll decide what browser I use.

  • Second of all, isn't Truth Revolt using the same exact tactics as OKCupid?

  • Thirdly, this won't make one tiny blip in the number of Firefox users.

  • And finally, I spend way too much time on the internet anyway, so not visiting Truth Revolt every day will save me some time.

Message to Truth Revolt: 

 What you are doing is really stupid.  Do you not realize there are a gazillion bazillion sources of news on the internet?   People, such as myself, are not going to like your tone in preferring us to cease using Firefox in order to read your blog. 

 I don't have the time or inclination at this point to make any changes.  I don't like messing with my computer and I certainly don't need to read your blog. 

Grow up.  You're just a blip on the planet of cyberspace.
