+ - Gender gap in tech salaries is all gone, Dice reports->

bobwrit (1232148) writes ""The field of IT is notorious for being persistently male-dominated, but that doesn't mean women still suffer from a gender gap when it comes to pay.

In fact, the compensation gender gap has disappeared for tech workers, according to the latest salary survey from IT careers site Dice. Specifically, ever since 2009, average salaries have been equivalent for male and female tech professionals, the company reported on Tuesday — as long as you're comparing equal levels of experience and education and parallel job titles.""

Actually that is intentional and well thought out. It prevents people from typing in that IP and trying to do something. When real phone numbers appeared on TV or in songs it was quite annoying for the person whose number that was. They are just trying to avoid similar inconveniences.

Why not just use private network IP addresses then? It's not like there aren't thousands to choose from. Most of the general public probably wouldn't know the difference, making it much more "realistic."
