Good stuff, Fernando.

I haven't seen anything from Anon in a long time. Has the group largely been defanged or something?

Right?

Depends what you consider "Anon" nowadays.

For example, a lot of the online Trump support has been organised pretty much directly from /pol/, 4chan's "politically incorrect" board.  The memes, edgelordism...it's all classic, if toxic, 4chan.

Yeah, nowadays they make shit like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1w4IxCXIxU
My shit list: Stephen Harper, anarchists that complain about taxes instead of institutionalized torture, those people walking, anyone who lets a single aspect of themselves define their entire personality, salesmen that don't smoke pipes, Fredericton New Brunswick, bigots, philosophy majors, my nemesis, pirates that don't do anything, criminals without class, sociopaths, narcissists, furries, juggalos, foes.

So the new hire is trying to gaslight me.

Problem for her: I was already pretty convinced she was wrong on all her attempts, and I got confirmation on two of them today.  Oops.  Furthermore, people in glass houses should not throw stones...and people who consistently and as a matter of record misplace master keys shouldn't try and implicate others in key loss.

I have to wonder why she cares so badly, though.  I mean, it's an open secret I don't intend to hang around anyway.

Thanks all!


My ANALysis of Anointmoose:

They started out just as much disorganized and "legion" as they were Freedom fighters. Skiddies wanting to seem cool, and actual full-fledged security professionals became unnamed allies under the guise of the idea that freedom was inherently wasted and attacked all around the world. The idea that those who attack freedom deserve to be held accountable for their actions. An attack on freedom was an attack on humanity, in their eyes. And unlike most movements like this, it was EMOTIONAL. It recognized the individuality and unity and flaws of mankind and embraced all of it. It was blind to political bias and was sought after by liberals and conservatives alike.

Eventually, the media got a hold of It and turned it into a political bill to steer into any direction they wanted. Some people could make a cool video about how some organization did this thing and it was bad because it was obviously bad there's no reason to talk about why it's justified and organizations would be knocked offline and cost millions of dollars a day trying to fend off attacks that were larger in scale than the ones done to people who actually fucking attacked freedom. Now it's an authoritarian circle-jerk for those who are offended by others' freedom.



Cain, I think she's just got control issues. Not really too much deep thought involved in people who are like that. I doubt she's even capable of planning anything a week in advance unless it has to do with manipulation. She probably doesn't even have a motive other than subconscious craving of power.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

Eh, she likes organizing stuff (a little too much, IMO) but it's whatever.  I mean, if my aspiration in life was to be the Queen Bee of this department, I'd probably reconsider my life priorites and kill myself, in that order.

Anyway, I wont have to deal with her crazy shit in a couple of weeks anyway, as she will be on the opposite night shift.  I'm just curious what she hopes to accomplish.  Make me look bad in front of management?  My supervisor practically spits blood every time he sees me, and has done for the past 15 months, and the department head...well, I've questioned his competence, gotten into email slanging matches with him and explained property law to him like he were a five year old, so unless she has something to top those...  :lulz:

HR manager has been trying to arrange my second meeting with the CEO for longer than I may be able to resist...  I have tried explaining to her the shit-show storm of toxicity that was my first encounter with him, nearly resulting in my permanently leaving the company;  and how my capacity to still work there is built on a very tenuous compartmentalization of ethical concerns that require me not having to tolerate any exposure to said perniciously harmful hypocrisy.

Essentially, I recognize that a bigger man than myself would be able to muster or cajole the compassion nescesary to forgive this CEO for the bad faith under which he operates.  The direct interference I first experienced is something I am now technically over, and, except for rank, our positions and operations have been completely independent for years.  It's like we don't exist to each other now.  That's been great, though not entirely free from effort as a fair amount of compartmentalization still occurs just to ensure that we don't cross paths.

HR insists that things could be better, for everyone, if all that could just magically disappear.  I agree yet have reservations about how much more compartmentalization would be required to get through that second meeting.  CEO has been good about acting as if he's ready to make some concessions, though I suspect the reality is that we won't see eye to eye.  It's then hard for me not to take it personally, because I'm a human being and KNOW my fucking rights...  Anyhow, I should get back to work now. :kingmeh:

I mean that. In looking for the right version to express this I passed several good options, but only this version seemed to be the not-sad essence I feel it's important to emphasize. Didn't know he did this and glad that I do now!

I landed a paid internship that involves Python, pays more than my previous job, and has a beer fridge in the office.

If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

I got put on one medication for treating my anxiety, depression, and insomnia.  I started eating A LOT of food.  I went back to that livestrong.com place with the food and excersize tracker.  Hopeful that I won't get Jaba the Hutish and might get healthy.
