Well, we lot don’t expect your bunch to be breathing much longer, so it’s easy ;)

But these little turd millennials need a solid kick.

Before you check out for good though Enz, what’s this “yourbrother” login you approved. It’s creepy, and possibly a recently banned poster (of kiwi or even Irish descent).

It's a pretty dull read. I can't be bothered to finish it.

Yes, I kept expecting something better but it was a bit dull.

It was possibly a story planted by google that was deliberately so boring that no one got to the end of it so the problems that google has will be forgotten by everyone.

I got to the end of it and then had to Google my own name.

I was also frantically looking around for something to clutch onto.
Maybe I don't understand it, because I am not an engineer. :(

Shame your generation did solve this battle when you had a chance. Like the environment, global debt, etc. I guess you see it as the job of your children to sort out.

I’m not I’m any way an ageist, but old people make me sick. I could never hire one.

The left will eat itself

Famed left wing organisation, Google.


It is. Didn't you not read about their overt pushes for diversity for women coupled with higher ups hot on women they can prey upon? or closeness with the Democrat establishment while being willing to sell out to China? Their don't be evil mantra while fighting for Pentagon defence contracts?

Of course they are that shit type of left leaning virtue signalling organisation, the silicon valley sort, where they'll get rid of someone challenging their diversity directives as flawed while celebrating sexual harassers who make them money, hence Duff Paddy's comment.

I think so.

1.) A company having a message board where everyone converses in cliqs saying all the bullshit everyone thinks about the company and leadership sounds like one of the easiest ways to destroy a company from the inside out ever.

2.) Google as a company sounds like the closest real life example of Andrew Ryan's exclave from Bioshock I've ever heard of. Ryan was a businessman of the Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged variety that sets up a community Rapture for like-minded societal elites separated from society under the ocean disillusioned with government, organized religion post-World War II. All is well, society runs fine without law. To shorten up the fictional background of a video game, a threat to Ryan's vision comes from someone that desires power, forcing Ryan to put in place laws until it gets to the point Ryan is a dictator. Civil war occurs and destroys Rapture and most of the inhabitants.

Being a woke idiot is exhausting. That's their problem.

I'm curious what that is. There's only so much diversity between mostly-white, almost-all-straight, almost-all-men, from rich, Western countries who are mostly-but-not-all agnostic-atheist and middle-to-upper class.

I think PR is a fortress of wokeness, barely balanced by a few fringe loons on either side. Hardly diverse though.

Really? I think most of PR is roughly centre-left, about the politically more active posters are more polarised. The majority who rarely comment on politics tend to display a more common-sense centralist/centre-right/centre-left position and even the left leaning ones ridicule woke politics.

Do you think you could eliminate the word "woke" from your vocabulary on here, EDF? I reckon you'd struggle to post much.
