Unfortunately, there are a lot of people in the same group as yourself. It is difficult to find a good job when businesses are performing credit checks, and hiring partially based on the criteria derived from the result. I have been not hired due to a poor credit score, but was hired by a company that doesn't take that information into account when hiring.

Microsoft and the EFF coming together about this issue.

I thought that this was a pretty cut and dried case; i4i created a plugin for Microsoft Word, attempted to sell it to MS, and MS took the code anyway and incorporated it into the Word application.

Is there more to this that I am not seeing?
