Advice columnists will always tell the writer who wants to know if she should encourage her boyfriend to leave his wife: if he will cheat on her, what makes you think he won't cheat on you? He's already proven to be a cheater.

I would not want to hire someone willing to sell out the IP of their last employer. How can I trust this person with my IP?

Good for you. You recognized a potential dysfunction and prevented it from becoming a problem. But look at the larger picture from a female perspective. You hired a male who was going to mistreat your female peers in a negative way. 1. What percentage of the pool of potential male employees fits that profile? 2. What percentage of potential female employees are liable to come in and disrupt your company by mistreating their male peers?

Heuristics are bug ridden by definition. If they didn't have bugs, then they'd be algorithms.
