I'm well aware of the moral of the story (I've been dating a historian for 12 years, and my awareness of it still impresses her).

I didn't say anything about historical reality, I said that crediting "feminism" with the concept was nuts, and implied that just because something is in the OT doesn't make it good/right/accurate/worth a damn (and it sure as hell has fuckall to do with "historical reality").

#2 is mostly but not entirely true. I've been at my current job for nearly 7 years now (and have no intention of leaving as long as the doors stay open) for just that reason: It's a very small software company, and the pay is below market (especially given the number of DevOps hats I wear), but it's more than enough to live on, and the bosses DO treat me with the same loyalty and respect I give them.

Apparently, I work in Narnia.

Nah, that's strictly PFY-level Bastardry. A BOFH would be running a lucrative side-business selling the Lusers "privacy dongles" -- USB Flash drives pre-loaded with remote-access malware (conviniently whitelisted) -- to protect them from such monitoring, for the low, fair price of $199.99
