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.
Yes, very dull.
Did it even have a point?
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.

Once again the age old battle with ageism is ignored. :x
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.
