Ethisphere is a for-profit company that charges a fee to the companies it's evaluating. 'Nuff said.

Shortage + crypto = pain in the ass. We could mitigate a great deal of this - and do wonders for the environment - by outlawing crypto.

For once we agree on this. Crypto is just a parasite on resources and electricity.

WD marketing SMR drives specifically for NAS RAID usage without disclosing they were SMR drives was really ethical. I guess they won again because they pinky swore that they would stop doing it after they got caught and sued?
Okay, I had totally missed this, had no idea what a SMR drive was. Googled it. Now, someone point me to a good article explaining the pros and cons of SMR vs PMR​ vs CMR...

Western Digital Named One of the World's Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere for the Third Year in a Row.

I wonder how much companies need to pay to get on that list. Pepsico, Kellogg's, and Starbucks are prime contributors to the obesity epidemic. Visa and USBank make most of their money off penalty fees and usurious rates. John Deere sues farmers who just want to fix their own tractors. Booz Allan Hamilton has been involved with stealing competitors IP and overcharging the government. AT&T slows competitors data through its networks and signs people up for services they didn't request. Surprised Comcast and Boeing didn't make the list.

The entire list is a who-is-who of unethical money bags mate... this list does not reward ethics, it rewards ""diversity"" efforts.. took me a moment to realize that too, this is how Accenture can be on there.

I don't even feel like making a joke about it, this award, this list, is just depressingly sad.
