Other than the fact that the assertion of discrimination could benefit
from an example since as far as I have been able to ascertain, despite
the vague accusations of the report, no evidence of real
discrimination were found. Insinuations perhaps but that's all.

perhaps you could explain what you considered discrimination and why
you consider it to be unreasonable?
The most devastating evidence against Sternberg's claims and the
claims of the report is the appendix of the report which shows that
while people were upset with Sternberg, care was taken not to make him
a martyr.

In fact the NCSE was quick to point out that one should avoid such an
approach and instead focus on the issues.
