Mr. Steven Burn of Malwarebytes

Speaking of Mr. Steven Burn of Malwarebytes, he also said this in that same thread:

Thanks for letting me know. I'll have a word with him.

That's in regard to you spamming Slashdot comments, and he posted that in February. How did that conversation go? Because in this story from yesterday, you posted this exact text 9 different times in those comments, and since it's the end of the day before a holiday and no one is getting anything done anyway, I went ahead and found no less than 39 comments from you in that one story alone. There are only 101 comments total, 39 of them are yours, and 9 of those are that same wall of text advertising your software. That is the very definition of spam. You also posted this text, the one referencing Steven Burn, 4 different times in that comment thread. You are spamming a Slashdot comment thread with a link to a guy saying that he's going to talk to you about spamming Slashdot comment threads. What's going on here? Why is it necessary to go into the comments for certain stories and see tens of posts by you with either the exact same text or you arguing with other people about spamming? Why do we have to endure that on Slashdot? More importantly, do you think that makes you look good? Do you think it makes people want to try your software? What's the point? Why isn't it enough to post a single ad for your software, even though that would still be considered spam? Why do you need to do it 9 times? Can you give it a rest for the sake of everyone else?

So if management stops treating engineers like expendable crap we might be less inclined to spend our working hours pondering how to kill them without getting arrested for it?

Seriously, some of those wasters of precious oxygen are only still alive for the only reason that they're not worth the jail time.

Warranty on what exactly.

If you purchase a pre-assembled computer, you have a right to warranty on the way these parts are assembled in on top of the warranty of each single part. You can actually go and claim damages if, e.g. the cooling isn't sufficient and the CPU gets damaged because the fan was improperly installed. This is of course out the window if you open the case because it's no longer possible to determine whether you have tampered with it and hence whose fault it is that the heat sink wasn't properly installed on the CPU.

You could not lose warranty on the parts with the removal of the sticker. Only on assembly.
