Ask Slashdot: Dealing With Unwanted But Official Security Probes?

mustafap The title is unhelpful (238 comments)

If this is official, then it's official. If you dont like it, change jobs ( or change jobs and report it if illegal )
If it's official and you don't like it, then grow up and learn to communicate with people. The organisation is bigger than your personal view point.

Ask Slashdot: Advice For Budding Scientist?

mustafap Re:Advice (279 comments)

here are my thoughts...

Remember why the good Lord made your eyes,
So don't shade your eyes,
But plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize -
Only be sure always to call it please 'research'.
