    No. If it’s everyone, then it’s everyone and at worst it’s not the most efficient way to communicate.

    I would say, if you single out a group of people based on physical characteristics, then it gets weird.

    But if it’s “The internet won’t start” vs “Every packet on port 433 is dropped even though no firewall rule is set”, then I think it’s reasonable to make some asumptions and adjust communication accordingly.

    I work in IT and sometimes I have to explain something to a user who is somewhat tech-illiterate. Even developers may have significant blind spots when it comes to their OS or networking, for example.

    So, if I notice it, I’ll change some terminology and I may explain instructions differently or use metaphors so every user understands what I’m saying.

    And most coworkers do the same thing.

    Here’s why I bring this up: For whatever reason, some colleagues give female coworkers the same treatment.

    And that’s weird.

    If someone is constantly treated like this, they should be allowed to rant about it on their blog. I’m fine with snark if it geht’s a point across.









  • Hello, I’m your boss. Saw you on your phone during your break in the video feed.

    You’ve been asking for a raise for years. Unfortunately, you’re a really good performer, always on time, good worker, and I’ve never heard anything negative that I could base my decision to deny your raise on. So I watched the video feed to find the most minuscule thing that I can pinpoint as a “problem”. I was about to tell you that drinking water on the job significantly decreases your performance, but that post you made on your break is now going to be my reason. Screw you. I love money!

    Sincerely, your favorite boss

    I fairly often drive 50,000m/h, except on the autobahn. There I usually go about 120,000,000mm/h.

    And if I stack 1000 1cm³ blocks of water, the resulting 10m high column has a volume of 1l, weighs 1kg and exerts 100kPa of pressure on its base. And to heat it by 1°C requires 1kcal, while 1N would accelerate it by 1m/s every second.

    What I want to say is: Your point is stupid and your units are too.

    My “favorite neoliberal”?

    I’m an entire person, not a single-sided strawman. I edited my reply to also state that I think neolibs suck too, if that helps to unflatten my thoughts on this a bit. And because I think they do.

    I’d also like to add that I’ve seen this image and others like it posted in anti-progressive groups by anti-progressive people, instilling exactly the message I explained earlier. Which is why I say the message either isn’t clear, or just bad.

    I don’t feel like I’m “gasping at straws”. I feel my argument is somewhat reasonable and I hope my point is a little clearer now.

    I have to go back to work now.
