Or maybe it's none of your business. Maybe it's a webpage about panic
disorders, heart conditions, depression, or some other medical
condition. Maybe it's a "Tips for Single Parents" page, or a series
of essays on being a Muslim in a Christian society.

I must have been having a really bad day. I could have sworn I included the
phrase "the content of the work so discovered is strictly out of bounds"
when I posted my comment. Yet everyone who's jumped at me has quite
conveniently decided not to read that phrase. Can I ask what there is about
"strictly out of bounds" that's so hard to understand?

"You can't expect an employer to ignore it!" I hear you cry. Funny. We
expect employers to completely ignore other facets of a prospective
employee which cannot be hidden, such as membership in particular ethnic
classes. This is different?

Have fun,
Chief Managing Director In Charge, Department of Redundancy Department

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
Opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
