About Time !
Thank You, activists that have worked so diligently.
The web is rampant with inappropriate comments toward women, and degrading, rude comments left by men on bulletin boards, blogs, and product and service reviews and social media all over the web.
The tolerance of moderators, posters, and other visitors is abhorrent. I welcome any and all inroads to bring public awareness and change about. Having better methods, and greater acceptability of denying such commentary brings out the best in people and holds humanity.
Most of all it makes the the world more pleasant and safer toward women, and in turn for men and children as well.

Actually, they had long known of the crimes -it was a standard practice. They actively fought activists who¬† fought diligently to rectify the problem. Glad to see they were (semi) successful. I dunno if I believe the statements that they are fully above board & in compliance, as the other public statements, aren’t fully truthful.
Glad they have reigned in some of this awful behavior.
