This should be my last visit to this WI forum, so any favor back from you will not be returned.
You probably will come back to see if I replied, but I'll let you have the last word.

WOW! I thought you only harassed gays and lesbians, its nice to know in a sick way that you are an equal opportunity racist bigot. Your posts are outrageous. Do you not have anything better to do than be bitter, insulting, antagonistic, and offensive at every opportunity to do so? Maybe we would all be better off if you just lost yourself back in Cali. Your offerings to the most humble and polite inquiries posted on this forum are disgusting. You really should consider taking yourself out back and find a pond with shallow ice and go for a stroll.

Qwertyfarmer,
I concur with you regarding formercaligirl's attitude on this forum. She needs to get a life.

OP asked nothing bad.

LOL...she hates her home state too, but doesn't think others can hate theirs!

Oh my goodness. No matter what any of you think, I've NEVER posted anything as vile as this. True, I feel that some of your seemingly innocous posts are really very racist and biggotted, and as one of too many Americans who feel sucker-punched by political correctness and reverse racism, I probably was a bit too direct in my posts. But I NEVER imagined anybody would tell me they wish I would go drown myself.

QwertyFarmer, you win. You've succeeded in chasing me out of here.

Seriously, you called the OP a racist just because they asked if there was any chinese that worked at Land's End.

To the OP, WI does have a growing Hmong population.

If an Asian wants Asians around, or a gay wants gays around, or a white wants whites around I would understand. It makes sense. (Me personally I like a little diversity.)

It bothers me when only a white person would get ridiculed for this request & every one of you knows that they would & this is not true equality.

There was a thread on the Milwaukee forum a bit ago by a guy who wanted to live in a white neighborhood & he received about 100 posts flaming him, calling him a racist.

Also imagine a white person going on the Memphis board & asking about the diversity at a business & stating she would love to have other white people around as this person did. Again I could care less, but let's keep it equal.

WOW - sorry oprwdm - for the less than friendly banter on this post. Who would want to move here if you thought all Wisconsonites were like this..... Well we're not....at least my friends and co-workers aren't..

Anyway, back to your orginal question....my brother worked for Lands End via a consulting gig for 10 years. He loved the people and the atmosphere at Lands End. Not sure how it breaks down ethnically, but my brother lived in Madison and worked there - not a horrible commute and Madison is certainly a melting pot of people.....so in case you change your mind it might be worth a visit afterall.

thanks,
If you have any specific questions concerning Lands End in Dodgeville - let me know here or PM me and I'll forward the queary to a former employee there.
