You're posting to Slashdot. Your argument, stated clear enough for a 5th grader to grasp will be ignored for the same reason it is ignored elsewhere.

Take it from a black man who's father taught him the ropes decades ago. Pick your battles and accept change will be generational-ly slow.

That is very true that most first time offenders could get off with a warning, but we are talking about on the job offenses.
You LITERALLY cannot find a workplace in this country that you can assault, batter and steal from someone and not expect to be thrown in jail and lose your job.

Except for being an officer, apparently.

Comment: no revenge when you are dead (Score 1) 512

It is self evident that killing people will make enemies of their families. [...] If you came and killed my child I would not report those trying to kill you to the police or army. I would do everything I could to support those trying to kill you. As I said above, it is self evident that the Palistinian survivors of this will do everything they can to kill Israelis in the future.

You can not be an enemy if you are dead. This idea that you would get revenge is silly.

This conflict will end because one side will die. The sooner this happens, the lower the body count. (the number of dead can greatly exceed the total population if the conflict drags on for generations)

Please. Go right ahead. You wont last nearly as long as FB has because things cost money
Oh boo hoo, you have to suffer through a few ads to use something for free. I guess everyone forgot or was not around for the first 5+ years of ad free FB.
If you want to leave your personal information off of facebook then GET OFF OF FACEBOOK. Don't cry like entitled children because I am sure no one here works for free.
