The boss in IT does not have to be technically competent but they have to be a techie for two reasons.

1) You have to be able to understand the lingo and the significance of it. I've had project managers that didn't know what a driver is. That was insulting and we had to drag this moron through the whole process.

2) If IT is run by non-techies then it's always a clusterfuck. It also tells your IT people that you think any schlub in a suit can just step in and do it.

This is why socialism revolves around workers owning the means of production.
This gatekeeper crap should be against the law. I should be able to sell my work to my customers and Apple should have no say in that transaction.
This is why I've only developed Android apps. I'm not real crazy about their censorship of their App store either but at least I have the option of side loading.

A company like this should be seized and auctioned off with the employees getting first refusal on any deal.
Any stock owners should be allowed to sue the board of directors for their loss.

Unless this kind of activity ruins careers then it will continue.

This is abuse, fraud and theft.

It depends how fascist a state you work in. In some states they can fire you without reason making your freedom of expression guaranteed in the constitution completely moot. This is called At Will employment, it's sick and disgusting. It means that if you get fired for being gay you have to prove that it was because you are gay and not just because they felt like it.

I don't know if I'd take this drug. I'm over 40 and have learned to manage the downsides. I've also learned to use the super powers associated with mild cases of ASD.
I've had to learn to override the adrenal response which gives me the ability to act when most people just freeze up(e.g. artillery strike). I'm always having a stress reaction when I'm outside my own head so a little more doesn't really matter that much. I doubt it would fix my voice modulation (flat affect)and other mannerisms that have been ingrained. I wish you could try it before making it permanent.

The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
