The Mars Rover is now a She? Could it ever have been a He?
No. The Rover is an It.
In the frenzy to be politically correct, mistakes are made I guess.
Cooperation between two allies against somebody who put lives in jeapordy? Don't forget Assange is just as much against the UK as he is the US.

Boards back in the day were pretty-much divided into two kinds, or a mixture of them: download boards and conversation, or convo boards. I used both, but hosted a purely convo board for 8 years (Walden Commune BBS in Montreal) back in the 80's mostly.
