Hello Sam,

Thanks for your version! I'm glad to see a native English speaker
working on it :) 

Also thanks to Nico for his comments. I think all remarks are covered
and changed with this version, or did I miss something?

In etherpad, you noted:
  "knowledgeability sounds weird" : I agree. A foreign concept like
   this shouldn't be in the first sentence, IMO.

Does your "foreign concept" refer to the word "knowledgeability" or
do you suggest to change whole sentence or move it somewhere else?

The only change I made after Sam's edit was to replace "discriminate"
with "discrimination". 

The draft can still be edited here until end of February:
