Except that in an open relationship, I imagine getting to know someone you're sleeping with is probably not a good idea. Too many common interests with the bit on the side can lead to an unplanned change in relationship status.

I recently joined a poly group with 30,000 members on Fb to get more info on what it's really all about and what I've learned is that there is some of everything out there, and there's a label for everything. And there's people whose relationships are at all levels of openness from completely, to completely rules-based. And there's examples of each of these both succeeding and failing, or doing one and then the other... or vice versa.

No boot ROM means that a hardware device constructed from discrete logic and analog chips directly demodulates digital data from the radio, addresses the memory, and writes the data. Once this process is completed, it de-asserts the RESET line of the CPU and the CPU starts executing from an address in memory. Really no ROM!

So you want to ban any kind of sexual advances?

From a superior to a subordinate? Absolutely. But the rule for harassment is that if it's unwanted, it's harassment. If you're not absolutely sure that it's desired, don't do it. Sex with coworkers is usually a bad idea anyway, because even after you stop, you still have to work together. Sure, some people are mature enough to handle situations like that. Unfortunately, there's no reliable way to identify them ahead of time. That's how you can get an astronaut in a diaper.

The second problem obviously was that it wasn't his first encounter like that, but one does have to ask whether his other encounters were with his subordinates as well, or whether it was simply with other coworkers (which is okay).

It's not automagically okay. There's lots of ways in which it can be inappropriate. If your first advance is not welcomed, then you should stop immediately. This is not that complicated, but a lot of people want to make it complicated to excuse some shit behavior that is creating hostile work environments all over the world, let alone the country.

Some of my readers ask me what a "Serial Port" is. The answer is: I don't know. Is it some kind of wine you have with breakfast?
