Re: Muslim refugees housed in Swiss brothel

off topic and just a small thing I just noticed

have you ever noticed when you hover over someone's "blobs" (ohhh.errr )
you get their reputation standing

however when you hover over the locals blobs.. it simply says "the local"

funny about that eh?

You mean to say they were discriminated and housed there because of their religion? (at least it sounds like that). Any one (any faith), shouldn't be housed there?

Re: Muslim refugees housed in Swiss brothel

Surely it's an ex-brothel. Nope, the floor above the rooms used by the prostitutes.

Would it have sounded more intriguing if it was "11 single Irish male refugees housed in brothel"

Why discriminated against?
I was working in Amsterdam some years ago & rented a room in a brothel; much cheaper than the local hotels & there was always somebody in the bar to talk to.
I did not feel discriminated against
