As someone who's done a fair bit of interviewing, I can say that hiring is one the most biased processes we have. No one ever has all the qualifications you're looking for, so you're almost always picking among multiple non-ideal candidates. How that decision is ultimately made is usually completely subjective, and therefore ripe for discrimination on any number of areas.

Not a concern as far as I know. To quote a well known sportswriter, "If you took all the cheaters and bums out of baseball you could put the Hall of Fame in a broom closet."
He was a very good pitcher for quite some time and had no cheating scandals that I know of. The only thing I can grasp at you did not like his politics and my question what has that to do with baseball?

On the plus side, my Put on BB is now worth 3x what I paid for it.

Normally I support PETA's basic intent, but like so many liberal causes, they are now going off the deep end. Just how does PETA think domesticated animals came into being? Cattle, sheep, horses, Oxen, chickens all used to be wild animals until man started capturing them and keeping them to perform work or serve as a food source.
Domesticating wild animals is OK in my book, but it does sound like this particular coconut operation is unnecessarily cruel.

I wasn't aware that social media was "centralized"...;) I'm not sure that is the problem. I think the problem is that political censors with shallow mental capacities are running the cancel culture. It's the banning of speech that is the problem.
It may seem like social media is "centralized" and that one "big" censor is directing all of the "little censors" as to content they should ban. But really, I think what happens is mere copy-catting. Censors by nature are fairly dense/dumb, so they merely copy one another. There should be no censors employed by social media--that would fix the problem nicely.
IMO, apart from the following two characteristics, no speech should be censored:
1) Gratuitously profane posts which do little aside from convey profanity sans any rational thought.
(Ex: "F---,F---,F---, you, u motherf---ing S-- o- a b-----! Eat my d---!")
2) Threats of physical violence against named individuals.
(Ex: "I am going to shoot J-- B---- soon.", etc.)
Apart from the two conditions above--nothing at all should be censored from public discourse. Censorship of political speech is not only as dumb and unenlightened and as backwards as it gets, in America it is unconstitutional (illegal) for any US government authority, be it local, state, or federal, to penalize or punish any American for his political speech. Free speech is an American birthright. Only fools and ingrates would see that right nullified, imo. American social media companies which pretend to offer-free speech platforms to the American public--but don't--should be heavily fined by the government until the censorship of non-profane, non-threatening discussion stops. $1 million a day in fines should do it for the first 90 days, escalating to $2 million a day for the next 90 days, escalating to $3 million a day for the next 90 days, and so on--until either the company goes bust or the censorship finally stops.
Few people will be happy with Tim Cook or Zuckerberg telling them what they can read, what they can say, and what they can think. IE, the judgment and reasoning capabilities of either of these individuals is sorely deficient in this regard. Free public political speech is always the best policy! And in America, it's the law.

Liberals accuse conservatives of things such as conspiring with foreign governments to win elections, and putting lobbyists in charge of regulatory agencies, and other such nefarious politicking.
Conservatives accuse liberals of being Satan-worshipping cannibal pedophiles who run secret child trafficking rings out of pizza parlors.

The salt mine here never fails. I hope you guys are ready for four more years.
You just wait and see. I'm not the only one saying this, but if this is a shock to the system, go ahead and screencap this.
You're in good company with Trump, his family, Rudy Giuliani, OAN, Jacob Wohl, and literally no one else.
Don't screencap this, just make a gentleman's bet. If Trump gets 4 more years, I'll never post here again. If he isn't President next year, you agree to the same.
Deal and bookmarked. I'll even ask Blue to cancel my account.
*edit* I don't want you to stop posting, this is all in fun.
Blue, go ahead and cancel my account (to prevent me from posting here). True to my word.

The source material is NOT kids friendly (almost not teen-friendly either). So is this implying most of those who play Fortnite aren't kids or teens?
