I wish IBM could have stood up for this Gaurav Sabnis fellow. Not endorse his view, but not succumb to bullshit like “bad publicity”. Stupid pusillanimous corporates and their unwillingness to make moral stands.
[Addendum: Naivete is bad. Perhaps all is not to be taken at face value]
[Addendum2: IIPM's "legal" notice was such a gas]
[Addendum3: As pointed out, the guy's manager asked him to reconsider, so IBM technically did do something to stand up for him]
