    Thanks. I wanted to clarify that becuase it would seem out of character for you if it was charges that mattered.

    It doesn't present a case for your vehemently held opinion in any way.

    In truth, it damages your position because it makes it appear to have no legitimate logical basis.
    I enjoyed where you make others people mind up that I damagaed my position.
    FURTHERMORE, you are focusing on what I said simply because you dont have anywhere to go with your discussion. You know what I said is rock solid so you cant attack that. You just stuck out your tounge and basically did a "I know what YOU are, but what am I" shuffle across the dance floor.

    I do care if you have a history of violent crime or sexual misconduct in a criminal way. Barring that, whatever. Do your job and we will get along fine.
    I agree with you. Drug Tests are acceptable if the job involves being around drugs or operating potentially dangerous equipment. And I think credit checks are okay for financial services workers.

    Otherwise, I don't see how anything else should be an employers business.

    I shall agree with you. And add that anyone that is around children have a psyc test done and a criminal background check.

    What you said wasn't "rock solid" by any stretch. It was merely a vehemently held, but wholly unsubstantiated opinion.

    There was nothing to refute in your post because there was nothing of substance contained within it. You are claiming that your opinion is fact when it isn't. Aside from pointing out that it is actually just your opinion and that you haven't even tried to support it with anything but more opinion, there is little I can do with it.

    If you actually wish to discuss the topic, then you have to present a case of some sort for WHY you hold the opinion that these things are wrong. Simply saying "These things are WRONG!!!1111!!" isn't supporting that opinion. It's merely restating it.

    I dont know how many OTHER ways to explain simple points that Im making. My freakin' CAT understands already. I dont want companies chosing anyone because of their personal finance, whether it be good or otherwise. *cat is nodding* *slipping sheet of seaweed to cat*

    Well when your cat takes up the responsibility of having to run a company, I will be inclined to take its opinion into consideration.

    I believe in giving felons a second chance, but like you, not violent or sexual crimes.
    I also picked drug testing. Not saying I wouldn't hire a pot smoker but I wouldn't hire an addict.

    And I dont have to run a company to know when someone isnt being treated ethically, professioanlly or fairly based on their skills.
