    With all the horror stories about teams discrimination, it's really nice to hear of a big company doing the right thing.

    I can't say it is a nice story, but i like the attitude of the company. Not sure if i would accept the job, though, but certainly they did the right thing by firing that stupid manager.

    Is it just me, or is England closer to 'the land of the free' than America is? Because all of the Uk has laws against diacrimination due to gender and sexual orientation, whereas not all of America has... It really is shamefull.

    Also, we don't have Donald Trump.

    In America we don't have the secret police knock down our door every time someone says something somebody else doesn't like.
