Not really nonsense, I am a mix of sysadmin/netadmin/ISP/security guy, DNS/DHCP/Linux expert, was consulting some years and some developer background. found my department my department in very bad shape and loads and loads of work, and the most senior guy around...too many hats, and the bigger help I got is people riding me of the bureaucratic problems. However that did not prevented me from writing a Radius/802.X book in the meanwhile, and being the support guy for FreeRadius for the portuguese federation. But yes, I am the guy speaking nonsense in this thread for sure.

check and check about being bullied in the past and the gym comment. I was bullied in school by a couple of colleagues, one of them slightly retarded and twice my size, and one day I was so full of it, I broke my fist on that giant face. Nobody ever bothered me that year anymore. The year after I went to a private school and there they were much more friendly.

What point proven, shall I say? I dont thing that my sexual organ automatically is a free pass to management or higher salaries. I also know that if I want raises and go up in the industry I have to change jobs. Heck, in the past I also changed countries to get raises and get into management. If I got where I am today, it is because of investing a lot of personal time studying technology, investigating, and lots of hard word. So tell me again, why should someone being treated differently because of what they have inside their trousers or because they have different colour? Stop the nonsense please. Btw, I am not in upper management anymore, and I do not get to complain I deserve it because of having a penis or not.

I have seen in digg (which is also driving a pro-feminist agenda but I digress), articles about employees not being promoted to management because they were women. well I also have not been promoted in many places, and never complained it was because I had a penis. Do I need to explain it to you? Maybe because I have a CV that his long, and quite an unusual experience, I have never experienced bullying on the field, and never witnessed it too. I also have some female friends in the industry, and fact is they are more afraid than us to make the jump to newer jobs. They are more social oriented, we always take the plunge for the green grass more impulsively and with lesser considerations "about the friends that we are leaving behind" (sic). Some of them also fail to grasp the unfortunate true, that despite having a penis, often on the industry the only way to get raises and promotions is to change jobs. The fact is guys change it more and have less qualms and fear about doing it.

Is being misogynist or racist is pointing out unfair situations where calling out for "diversity" ends up driving an agenda against or pro one of the groups against the other, you can call me names any day. And last time I checked, nobody is paid in Wikipedia, and their sheer power is numbers of voluntary people. Let the drums of political correctness continue...

Their facebook page is driving a pro-feminist agenda, and welcoming women-only posts in wikipedia under the guise of promoting "gender diversity". Last time I checked, promoting a diversity of something is welcoming from all sides, and nobody ever was preventing some sexes to use wikipedia. It is really a nice strategy to flip the bird to the people who most helped you grow. I have contributed to wikipedia in the past, but I am done with them.
