Are you seriously claiming that there's no way to show your interest in somebody without your approach qualifying as harassment?

Of course there is. Come on. Showing your interest starts with things such as eye contact, smiling at somebody, stuff like that. And if there's no response, move on. If there is, talk to her. It's not easy for us geeks, I know, but that doesn't mean it's impossible. :)

Good luck. :)

I got modded as a Troll a couple of days ago because I called the pro-gun crowd here "testosterone-driven" (sorry guys, sorry. you're right of course, high-powered firearms for everybody makes for a great society). So what makes somebody a troll most of all, I guess, is disagreeing with a local majority that's really convinced of its own righteousness. :)

It's quite obvious that guns should not be freely available to just anybody. Distrust of the government is fine but the view that having everyone have guns as a defence against the government is just an absurd rationalisation of testosterone-driven desire to own firepower.

Yes! I was rejected for a job at Google once. Now I will be able to tell everyone it was only because I'm white. ;-)

Seriously though, while I agree that hiring should be based on qualifications and not race/gender (or being a USian for that matter you bunch of nationalists), if an industry has so few non-white guys we need to take a long hard look at ourselves to check that there's no unfairness going on.
