Criminal background checks

Companies should be allowed by law to filter their employees how they see fit.
Having said that, testing for drugs but not alcohol or speeding tickets is hypocritical. Especially since most hard drugs are out of the system in a couple of days so you won't even detect them anyway.
If you're concerned about people being intoxicated then you should test for alcohol as well, and for the same reason.
If you're concerned about the person's respect for the law, then you should check for speeding and parking tickets as well, and for the same reason.
Otherwise you're a damn hypocrite.

My point was that I have had most of the aforementioned pre-employment checks (drug tests, credit checks, background checks, criminal record checks, etc) and I'm hardly what one would call a wallflower. Additionally, I have worked with a number of other software folks who have had the same checks and they were also not what people would call wallflowers.
But the simple fact that you hold that opinion is not enough to make the claim that it is the correct opinion and dissenting opinions are "wrong". In such instances, something must be presented to defend the veracity of said opinion and to show the falsehood of the dissenting opinion. One must either present a logical argument in favor of the opinion or some sort of fact-based evidence which supports that opinion over the other one. Repeatedly saying "I'm right and you're wrong" doesn't do that, and offers nothing worthy of rebuttal.
