    "So as far as I'm concerned, the discussion is about "how to work
    together DESPITE people being different". Not about trying to make
    everybody please each other. Because I can pretty much guarantee that
    I'll continue cursing. To me, the discussion would be about how to
    work together despite these kinds of cultural differences, not about
    "how do we make everybody nice and sing songs around the campfire"
