It doesn’t look like anyone has to worry about Condoleezza Rice being driven out of her position on Dropbox’s board. Lefties like Mark Ruffalo might be threatening to leave the service, but Dropbox is standing behind its choice, issuing a statement Friday on the company’s blog.

There’s nothing more important to us than keeping your stuff safe and secure. It’s why we’ve been fighting for transparency and government surveillance reform, and why we’ve been vocal and public with our principles and values.
We should have been clearer that none of this is going to change with Dr. Rice’s appointment to our Board. Our commitment to your rights and your privacy is at the heart of every decision we make, and this will continue.
We’re honored to have Dr. Rice join our board — she brings an incredible amount of experience and insight into international markets and the dynamics that define them. As we continue to expand into new countries, we need that type of insight to help us reach new users and defend their rights. Dr. Rice understands our stance on these issues and fully supports our commitments to our users.

@Dropbox love dropbox. Have a backbone and stand by your choice. And she's not a war criminal because some faceless coward on twitter says
