We’re not sure whether OKCupid CEO Sam Yagan literally lives in a glass house or not but he definitely just threw a stone that he shouldn’t have!

It was last week that his dating site shut down access to anyone trying to log in using Firefox!

The reason: the web browser’s parent company Mozilla was co-founded by a man named Brendan Eich who back in 2008 donated to the campaign trying to pass Prop 8 and effectively ban same-sex marriage in California!

OKCupid looked like they were standing up for gay rights with the move and gained attention around the world because of it.

But here’s the thing…

Head honcho Sam Yagan has contributed to anti-gay causes too!

Lots Of Websites Going Dark Today In Protest of SOPA And PIPA!

Filed under: Legal MattersTech Talk

stop sopa and pipa

Earlier this week, we were VERY pleased to hear that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was basically killed…although now we're hearing rumblings that it MAY not be as dead as we'd hoped. Boo!

Today, in protest of SOPA and the Protect IP Act (PIPA), a bunch of websites are going dark for the day in an effort to fight against Internet censorship!

Some websites that are participating in the blackout include Wikipedia, Mozilla, Wordpress, Livejournal, Twitpic, and Reddit.

We are in FULL support of this, and we truly hope that neither SOPA nor PIPA make it any further than they already have!
