They (or another company they acquired) used to be known as SafeNet. We were evaluating their cloud-based multifactor auth system and liked it, more than the RSA SecurID / Auth Manager setup that we've had for years.
But They Who Sign Checks Without A Clue told us we have to implement Azure MFA instead.

Well probably because he was letting his hot wife sleep with senior management he had a pass. What really needs to be investigated was was the guy pressured into having an open relationship so senior management cold bang his wife and hence thought it OK to bang subordinates.

That stuff is hard to keep quiet. Of the 20+ rumors of harassment & dalliance that made it to my ears in the schools & jobs I've had, only 2 turned out to be untrue.
Fowler claims that multiple women had file similar accusations; it's inconceivable that he'd been chasing multiple women at the same company and no one would know he was a cuck for the higher ups.

Wow, you really told me!

I guess that since you know someone who's been harassed, no investigation is necessary from now on, and we can just go with a policy of assuming that an accusation is proof. What could go wrong?

What could go wrong? Quite a bit, I suppose.
But dismissing claims of harassment, abuse & assault didn't work for the millions, possibly hundreds of millions of women since, well, forever.
And no amount of proof ever seemed to be enough, unless the accused was unpopular, had been accused before or was a minority.

Weigh that in the balance and see which way it tips.

Only a few years before Bill Clinton did this, the DEMOCRATS has weaponized the same sort of misdeed to remove Senator Packwood from office

In the specific case of Bob Packwood, a cursory amount of research & a few trips down memory lane show that to be false.
Between Nov 92 and Aug 93, first the Washington Post, then the LA Times and New York Times published quite a bit about Packwood's sexual misdeeds, for an initial total of 10 women dating back to 1989.
Packwood was hardly a Democratic target as he was a strong supporter of women's issues and the initial reaction from feminists was sheer disbelief.
And WaPo held off on publishing their story until after the election.

Senator Packwood's intern never filed a complaint against him either.

The Washington Post published accusations from 10 former female staffers in 1992, the New York Times published a long column called The Trials of Bob Packwood in Aug 1993 and Packwood still didn't quit until Sept 1995

Unless they are a Democratic President (see: Bill Clinton).

The Republicans only cared because they wanted Clinton gone. Also Lewinsky NEVER filed a complaint against Clinton.

Not that I was ever okay with his hound dog ways and Hillary should have dumped him long before that.

And someone was covering up for Dennis Hastert for a long time. And Gingrich.

She had better work extra hard at hanging on to her new job because after this she will never find another in tech or any other white collar work. Making a public scene like this about a former employer makes you positively radioactive to future employers. They will find this on even the most cursory Google search and won't bother to look any further. Nobody wants to hire a boat rocker with a chip on her shoulder who creates PR nightmares, that's just asking for trouble and business is hard enough without hiring mistakes like that.

Yeah, because hiring HER was such a mistake but not making a manager of the dysfunctional cuck who has HR lying to cover his repeated harassment of the female staff.

And it appears that Uber is investigating said allegation. We don't have enough information to know whether it happened or not. That's what investigations are for.

After the Duke Lacross Lynching and the UVA rape hoax, I'm inclined to reserve judgement until an accusation becomes a lawsuit and is litigated.


Glad to see the bar is set low enough you won't hurt yourself. And the friends & lovers who've confessed to me their personal stories of harrassment, rape & abuse will all be very relieved.

The problem was his wife. When she wanted an "open relationship" so she could fuck other guys he should have said "DROPPED" and found a faithful woman. Instead he said "okay..." and then went begging for sex from every other woman he encountered.

Girlfriend, not wife. My bet is that he's a sugar daddy & sub to some young thing that won't let him into her panties but gets him all worked up telling him about all the amazing sex she's having with other men.

Wrong. Sexual harassment is an UNWANTED advance. If the advance is welcome, it's not sexual harassment.

There's a time & place to make an advance and there has to be a basis for it. Propositioning women at a nightclub on ladies night is reasonable and even there you have to make opening moves that aren't blatantly sexual.
Regaling a brand new subordinate, of whose personal life you know nothing with your sorry story of being outscrewed by your open-relationship "girlfriend" at the office is Category 5 stupidity and deserves, at the very least, a demotion.

Reporting your boss to HR on the first day is usually a very bad way to start at a new company for any reasons

WTF? Is there an expectation in Silicon Valley to be subject to some kind of weird hazing when you start a new job, by your boss?

"On my first official day rotating on the team, my new manager sent me a string of messages over company chat. He was in an open relationship, he said, and his girlfriend was having an easy time finding new partners but he wasn't. He was trying to stay out of trouble at work, he said, but he couldn't help getting in trouble, because he was looking for women to have sex with"

This is how Fowler claims the person she was reporting to was propositioning her on day one. She didn't apply to be a sex surrogate for a clueless loser whose own girlfriend preferred to have sex with other people.
