WordPress.com parent company Automattic signs pledge not to build Muslim registry

From The Verge:

Automattic, which owns WordPress.com and a number of other web development and publishing tools, has signed a pledge not to help build a Muslim registry. The company’s founder and CEO, entrepreneur Matt Mullenweg, signed the pledge on behalf of his entire company today. Called neveragain.tech, the pledge is hosted on GitHub and was created to discourage Silicon Valley conpanies from participating in the creation of a database that President-elect Donald Trump’s administration could use to monitor and target Muslims.

Good for them. More tech companies need to sign on to this.
