Comment Re:In all fairness with this economy. (Score 1) 420

From the articles about the Bizarro universe that seems to exist inside HR departments in the tech world, my not being very good at the whole people networking thing, and too many tales of rampant ageism, there has to be a better way to do this. Why is there not a better system for connecting employees to jobs other than happening to know someone somewhere?

I'm just keeping my head down and trying to retire as early as possible.

We much eliminate the patriarchal something rape culture of the something something semprini something check your privilege something ponies. Or something like that. It's hard to follow sometimes.

I think it boils down to staunchly fighting ageism, racism and sexism by hating old, white males.

Well for one thing it denies them a highly-anticipated game. Or ruins it perhaps.

But it's ultimately just a game. I loved SimCity. When I heard the next one was online, I shrugged and moved on.

Would you feel impacted if they ruined the upcoming Hobbit films?


Would you feel impacted if they made the Super Bowl pay-per-view?


Would you feel impacted if Slashdot decided to cover celebrity gossip instead of nerd news?


You can choose not to participate in any of the above. Doesn't mean it won't ruin your day.

Then maybe people need wider tastes/interests, along with a sense of perspective and more emotional maturity, if these singular things can ruin their whole day.
