I'm just hoping with how overworked everyone in my company is that no one has time to look at any of said data if my company is collecting it. I suspect if they are, they are using it either:

  1. To metric on a broad basis to justify not giving us raises or whatever (they'd find something to fit their hypothesis no matter what)
  2. To get ammunition if they have already decided to fire someone

In both cases, what I do on the work-provided laptop will have no meaningful impact.

So please consider checking out other forums and participating there as well if any of you new people are reading this.

Is your concern that you want more chapo content throughout the rest of the site? They do appear to be posting stuff that would be great in /f/memer. Or are you hoping they'll engage in a non-chapo way in other forums?

I love that the facebook page for this group says "Dig for victory" because it reminds me of the digger movement. I've been contemplating guerilla gardening for food but it really has to be native plants or plants that can withstand the hotter weather with little rains. I suppose I could start planting napale cactus. :)

My father-in-law just moved to Texas. Before he moved, he believed us about safety precautions. We didn't even get to say goodbye to him before he left. Once he got there, he started acting as if there was no virus and it was all a conspiracy. He is very susceptible to right-wing propaganda and he moved somewhere that has a lot of it. We genuinely hope it doesn't kill him.

Been an exhausting last few days. I've been scouring the comments every couple of hours, making sure our new guests aren't violating TOS or etiquette. I'm starting to let the gap of time between logins get bigger and bigger as they all seem to be getting along mostly well. Very different vibe from the last time and from the /r/shoplifting influx. I'm well pleased with our new users. :)

I made homemade seitan steaks. They were awful. My husband loved them but I felt like I was eating raw dough. I need to try again because it's so much cheaper than buying vegan fake meats in the store.

Perhaps it is not wealthy people taking internships, but "middle class" instead. People who have some money/family support, more than say, poor folks who have had to help work to support the family.

I think this is a moment to make a choice

And why is now the moment? Why wasn't it the moment the years in the past we've had discussions about this? We've spent years on /f/meta reformulating our thoughts and ideas about how we'd like to see the site run. What is wrong with all of those sessions? Were those not valid? Are they only valid if you have a say?

I'm sorry but it sounds a lot like concern trolling again. And I'm not trying to pick a fight with you but I feel like you're nitpicking at stuff we've worked on for years with no real agenda except "concerns". What exactly are you going for here?
