MitchDev Re: Here we go again (469 comments)

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

MitchDev Re:lack of self-awareness (441 comments)

Sounds more like losers that can't cut it.

The workplace is for work.

Your off time is for friends and family.

She's another of those babies that want everyone to like them. Too bad it doesn't work that way in reality. I wonder how many of her co-workers could sense her as a fake.

President Obama Backs Regulation of Broadband As a Utility

MitchDev Re:ISPs don't want to take Cogent's money (704 comments)

You don't, unless you want individual billionaires running their own cables anew and selling you the connection. The cost of all that property access right-of-way and running all the lines is rather expensive.

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

MitchDev Re:The answer (441 comments)

Are they actually doing anything to her/at her? Or is she just pissy because they don;t want to spend their spare time with her? She's starting to sound like a harpy, and then wonders why no one wants to be her friend?

MitchDev Re:The answer (441 comments)

Amen... that is the big problem with all this "diversity" nonsense.

Businesses exist to make money, they'll hire people with the talent and ability to make them money, regardless of color, gender, race, etc.

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

MitchDev Re:lack of self-awareness (441 comments)

Doesn't really say how hard she tried, but if that batch of co-workers doesn't want to hang out with her socially, not really much she can do, except try to make other friends.

Frankly, she sounds like one of those annoying people that just want everyone to like and accept them and then they whine about it when someone doesn't find them fascinating or interesting. You can't force people to like you, and trying will just make them detest you...

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

MitchDev Re:lack of self-awareness (441 comments)

"When people learn to grow up and stop acting like the world revolves around them, they can learn to accomodate other people."

I agree, she should suck it up and go to the bar if she wants to socialize. Bars serve more than just beer.
Why should her co-workers waste their free time catering to those who don't have any interest in doing what they want to do?
Off the clock your time is YOURS, do want you want with it.
She needs to try fitting in rather than trying to force change.
Stop being a stick in the mud, listen to the conversations, and find something you;re willing to try that the existing social group likes and suggest doing that.

Why does "diversity" insist on dictating what people do with their rare and precious free time?

" I feel like I've lost my entire cultural identity in effort to be part of the culture I've spent the majority of the last decade in."

But why do you feel the need to inject YOUR culture into the workplace? You are there to work, not to discuss culture...

Facebook Wants You To Vote Tuesday

MitchDev Re:Stupid.... (165 comments)

If you are that stupid that you get all your political leaning from ONE source, perhaps you are too stupid to be allowed to live any longer...

No different than television ads, radios ads, all that garbage junk mail, all the annoying political phone calls, etc....

Facebook Wants You To Vote Tuesday

MitchDev Stupid.... (165 comments)

"raising questions about its use and Facebook's ability to influence elections"

And how is Facebook influencing elections by reminding users to vote? Are they also telling them who to vote FOR?

The campaign money Zuckerberg and fellow evil 1%ers does more to influence election results....

Virginia Court: LEOs Can Force You To Provide Fingerprint To Unlock Your Phone

MitchDev Re:don't use biometrics (328 comments)

Good point. People are such sheep that they haven't figured this out. But the current "Let's keep the people divided with all this fake "Democrats vs Republicans" bullshit so they don't realize America dies long ago and was replaced by a plutocracy."

Cutting the Cord? Time Warner Loses 184,000 TV Subscribers In One Quarter

MitchDev Re:They tried to raise prices 20% unnanounced (392 comments)

I usually never just "sit and watch TV", TV tends to be more of a "background noise", or if it's something I'm more actively watching, if there are commercials and it's not DVR'd to allow FF past them, I tune out and surf the web, or hit the can, or grab a drink or something until the commercials are over. I recognize them, but mainly as "white noise" that are otherwise ignored.
