Well, the reason that I would have wanted to pick would be:

The company that is offering you the job

I have refused work in the past for companies that I would not work for - notably a large tobacco company. Not that I am rabidly anti-smoking, but I would not work for a tobacco company. I guess even if we have sold out bodies and minds, we still don't have to sell our souls or ethics.

      If you would have had the power to read through the whole comment, he said that he would not work for a place that would go against his moral beliefs e.g. a tobacco company. Don't pass judgement on three words because that is too easy. Stop with the smart comments, and hear the full story before you reply.
