One of the divisions of my organisation acquired quite a bit of dark fibre for almost next to nothing during the dotcom meltdown as providers were going out of business .
They even have 4 manholes in a 2 mile radius that's "theirs" - the covers have the old corporate name stamped on them.

So someone who hasn't done something or even been accused of doing something should face serious consequences for saying something offhand outside the theater of work?

Actions have consequences and I agree with that but in the pussified world that we now live in, every oversensitive person gets to demand retribution for their offended feelings.
That's as bad as the segregrated workplace you despise.
