That's just HR Drones looking for their beloved checklist items. Someday they will learn, I hope.
As someone without a degree, I can tell you that those "requirements" evaporate rather quickly if you are even mildly persistent or have even half that time in real world job experience.

The poster I replied to said "If you were a believer in meditation you would not believe in such divisive speech." I can close my eyes and sit quietly and reflect upon something, but it does not mean I am going to stop using profane language or cruel humor. Divisive speech and meditation are unrelated.

If I have a copy of software on a floppy diskette, and I run a magnet by it, is it not at least somewhat ruined? What if that was the only location where that software existed? Isn't it "lost" or degraded? Software is not magically ported or retained. The electrons _can_ get screwed up, even on "good" media. This happens to all kinds of media, and when transferring to/from. Time will claim all copies.
