What if Weaselmancer works for a company that has no "work-from-home" policy and has a "set-hours" policy eg. 9-till-5 or something?
Basically you are saying he or she needs to be in the office for 16 hours each day, 8 to be "in attendance" and another 8 to actually get stuff done. GFY!
Once upon a time I worked for a shitty company like that, but somehow I managed to convince them to let me work in a server room (as a programmer). It was bloody cold but at least I got a lot of shit done. At one point they had four BA's all trying to pump out specs fast enough to keep me in work.

Suppose, instead, that there were police permanently stationed outside your house, watching your windows, and every time you left home they followed you everywhere you went.

Well, that would have stopped the guy that tried to break into my house early one morning when I was asleep in bed, and would also have stopped me from getting mugged that time walking home at night, so yeah, I'd say that would be a good thing!

I'm about to blow your mind. Security at airports is significantly higher than at magazine offices and rock concerts.

I'm about to blow it right back!

And in a country currently overrun with Islamists, it's not hard to see this happening.

Get all that?
Probably not because you seem to be an SJW moron.

If you're not prepared to grow up then at least creep back into your little safe-space and stop posting on the big bad internet.
