Welcome to Diversity Tomorrow.

This site is dedicated to the amazing and funny show, The Office, on NBC. For those unfamiliar with the joke, in an early episode, Dunder Mifflin manager Michael Scott had to suffer through a presentation on diversity. When he felt he learned nothing from it, he decided to create his own diversity training company -- Diversity Tomorrow. He called it that because, "today is almost over." This was the second episode in the first season and was titled "Diversity Day." As a fan of the show, this ties for my favorite episode, the other being "Casino Night." While the Wizard is a true fan of the show, this site is not affiliated with The Office or NBC in any way.

The site is owned and operated by the "Wizard of Odds" Michael Shackleford. In November 2009, he created the forum Wizard of Vegas, which was supposed to focus on gambling and Las Vegas. However, a high percentage of the posts were about more touchy topics, like politics, religion, and sexuality. This site is designed to discuss these topics, and all others, with the hope that the site’s older sibling can stay more on topic.

As I think Michael Scott would have been, I am a proponent of free speech. Nevertheless, free speech should have its limits. So please review the forum rules before you sign up and post. In particular, by far the most frequently broke rule is that no personal insults of other forum members are allowed. There is also a line in the sand regarding offensive and hateful speech towards any group of people. Finally, we have no compunction about "nuking" anybody if we feel the forum would be better off without them.

The pecking order on this site is, from top to bottom:
  1. The Wizard
  2. Webmaster JB and any others with full "admin" status
  3. Secret administrators/moderators
  4. The teeming masses

Finally, please keep in mind that this site is a dictatorship. If you don’t like the decision of an administrator -- tough! We don’t want to hear you complaining about it. If you don’t like it here, there is no shortage of other forums on the Internet.
