If merit was the only thing that matters why do you need a press release or comments about diversity at all?

In a merit based business, competent people show up and work. Losers get fired. The world keeps spinning. The end.

That's exactly what some of the comments said. Why bring up diversity if you're just talking about merit? They made the case that opening up their hiring pool from just the population of Switzerland to the entire world was an increase of diversity and something to appreciate, and sure it might be that based purely on numbers and the literal definition of what "diverse" actually means, but people were quick to point out that such a distinction was totally pointless.

They claimed that they didn't make a political post at all, but a couple users told them that by adding "diverse" into the mix, in today's modern politically charged social sphere, they definitely politicized it even if they didn't mean to.

Diversity is the antithesis of merit. There are few ways to excel and an infinite multitude of paths to being shit. Anyone that knows tech knows that competence is the nearly exclusive domain of the fair skinned. Talk of diversity suggests to me that the infiltration has already begun.
