A quick introduction:

I am or have been a: writer, publisher, renter of virtual apartments for real money, injector of radioactive materials (for the forces of good, usually), sociologist, teacher, BBS sysop, SJW, polyam, and dedicated to punching up. I also have screwed up a lot, and try to learn from that crap.

I write stuff at ideatrash.net, and share lots of things I find interesting.

jobs, capitalism 

@StevenSaus Of course that article ignores what's obvious to workers: once the pandemic hit & employers were letting employees go at the drop of a hat, those former employees realized that the job security they thought they had doesn't exist. That's the one reason why they put up with bad managers.

Now that the pandemic has exposed this workers are less likely to put up with bad managers & starvation wages. But I don't expect a publication like Bloomberg to get that.

I miss shareware :flan_disappointed:

I liked playing the first couple levels of a game to see if I wanted to send away for a disk. It seemed so much more civilized.

It's almost like working conditions matter.

Bad Managers Are Making the Labor Crisis Worse

With quit rates soaring, companies can’t afford to let lousy bosses be one more reason for workers to leave.

Forgotten one - This idea came to me after watching the gothic horror series “The Haunting of Bly Manor”. I agree that my character looks a bit like one from series, and also that spooky girl from The Ring. But it’s only an homage to them 👻Model: me (www.instagram.com/iscariot_eli…)Photography: makks tobi (www.instagram.com/makks_ph)SFX: Yuli_SFX (www.instagram.com/yuli_sfx/) from SFX kitchen (www.instagram.com/sfx_kitchen/) deviantart.com/iscariotelian/a

So how does everyone out there handle finding out when one of their favorite artists is an asshole?

Like I have friend who won't listen to The Smith anymore because of Morrissey, despite the band being the soundtrack of his younger life.

And I have friends who can't watch Buffy anymore because Joss Whedon is a big bag of dicks.

Faith Collapsing

Faith Collapsing is a host set up by me (Steven Saus) with the same sensibility of the BBS I ran back in the 1990s - I set it up for me, but folks I personally know are welcome to join if they like. Left-leaning; fascists will not be happy with my moderation. Incitements to violence or hate speech will get you gone.
