Comment Re:I work for non-profits on purpose (Score 1) 465

The last non-profit I worked for was a corrupt, badly run political horror. I left because I caught the boss committing tax fraud. She then gave me a bad review.

  I mentioned to the board that I am a bit unhappy that I was penalised by the CEO considering that she is committing fraud. The board member asked me "she is committing WHAT??".

CEO lost her job. I still have a bad reference though.

That said, I sometimes do contracting for the new CEO and it IS a pleasant place to work, yes.

Comment Easy problem to solve: Ban CC: (Score 2, Interesting) 65

Take out CC: in mails and only allow BCC:

I seriously hate it when my friends send a mail to me with some other people and my email address is not hand-delivered to the virus and spam-harvester infested horrors of my other friends. If ALL emails only went out by BCC this would not happen.

Mail server maintainers such as Postfix/Exim and such should band together and simply phase out CC and start treating the CC header as a BCC header. And then should begin rejecting mails with a CC with multiple email addresses in it outright. This would solve half of the world's spam problems in a few years too.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
