Search - "code of conduct"
I once met a very cute client. Inner me was saying to go and get this girl. But company's code of conduct is completely against it that an employee shouldn't ask his/her clients out with you or date with him/her. Even my colleagues knew me as a man of criteria. So I leave
the Code of Conduct and now she is my gf. :)12
Linux developers threaten to pull the kill switch...talking about giving people the finger this week...
If you have been following the nerd news these last weeks you may have heard about Linus leaving Linux (temporarily) and implementing the new CoC (pronounced cock) code of conduct thanks to the constant pressure of the ABC of inclusion (LGBTQLMNOP+ groups).
This new code of conduct aims, believe it or not, to change the predominantly white, straight, and male face of programming and it also seems to "mitigate the consequences of dogmatic meritocracy".
That's right, are you white, male, straight or otherwise pull yourself out of the mud? Yes, YOU are part of the problem (also racist, sexist and probably islamophobic).
Bullshit I know, these SJW privileged upper class assholes are pushing for these changes to inspire witch-hunts against good devs like Larry Garfield (cause: sexual fetishes) and give themselves more power over the free speech of people.
Ironic if you ask me because I haven't seen anything similar for oil rigging which is riddled with cis males (but ain't as comfy).
But not everything is lost and that's why this hasn't been a mouth foaming rant because boy I'm proud to know there are devs with balls out there; It seems there's a little detail with the GPL2 license and all those unjustly banned by the new stupid racist ass CoC can withdraw the license to their contributions crippling the Linux kernel project.
I'm not happy that GNU/Linux is being threatened like so, but it was about time we put a stop to this, your politics, skin color, religion and ideas should not matter when developing code, what matters is the code you produce.
Want to politicize our repos and kick out devs just because they don't think the way you do? Let's see how long you last without the contributions of the "deplorables"; let us see how many good contributions your new "diverse", PC stack do (other than changing master/slave or other terms).
My guess...as I've said earlier, everything these PC busybodies touch, if unchecked, crumbles to dust. (EA 😉)
Guys, I've been thinking.
Instead of 'I do', it'll be 'I agree'.
Should also probably make him sign an NDA incase things go south.
Also, probably a code of bathroom conduct. (I just remembered that football while peeing rant)37
--- Linux wants some hugs, and everyone gives a hug about it! ---
After the CoC controversy revolving around the Linux Kernel project, a change introduced by the CoC is being put into practice:
Jarkko Sakkinen, from Intel, started replacing words comments containing "fuck" with their "hug" variant. This means comments such as
/* master list of VME vectors -- don't fuck with this */
might look a bit different in the future:
/* master list of VME vectors -- don't hug with this */
People that oppose this change criticize that the comments will make much less sense to people that aren't fluent in English yet. They also do not like the redundant censoring - the actual meaning is still implied, just no longer included as clear text. It might also cause misunderstandings to people working with the code.
Those supporting this change, aside from jokingly mentioning that this change will save one character per f-word comment, note that this can give the Linux Kernel project a more positive feeling with anyone who works with the code, with "fuck" mostly associated with bad feelings, while "hug" is indeed mostly going to call positive feelings in our subconscious minds.
Who doesn't like a good hug? :)
What is your opinion on this rather controversial topic? Feel free to let us know in the comments, as we are very interested in your stances and arguments on this!
Several comment sections, IRC chats, and other places for people to express their opinions. Too many to list them all.63
I had the dream of working as web designer in Berlin.
You know: techno partys, hedonistic lifestyle and cheap living.
I applied and flew over and got some Interviews.
Arrived at the agency situated in a beautiful broad avenue in a villa at the Olympia Stadion. I was greeted by 2 loud small dogs and nobody else was there. So i waited an half an hour.. and another one...
I notice their company code of conduct nicely framed on the wall. You know what is written on the first place?
"We value peoples time therefore we're punctual."
"We are cosequent"
So after two hours waiting they came. They were pretty stressed out and neded another 45 minutes to get ready to interview me. So they sat at the table telling me excuses. And i pointed at the frame and they suddenly got very bleak in their faces. I stood up and left after 3 hours of waiting. 😆
Sadly no Berlin for me.13
--- linux.org domain taken over, doxxed person who created CoC (but wait!) ---
At the time of writing, linux.org does not support HTTPS and has an empty page. Previously, that page showed quite a lot of information about the doxxed person
www.linux.org redirects to the previously doxxed person's Twitter account.
Currently, this seems like a DNS takeover.
We ask you not to spam them. Yes, they created the CoC, something lots of you hate. However, they only created it. They weren't responsible for quite a few open-source projects adopting it. Thus, doxxing then like this was a (objectively) terrible idea, as they aren't responsible for those that made Linux use the widely-hated CoC.
Thanks for reading this brief article, take care.34
Behold, the SQLite new Code of Conduct:
May this be a guide to all current and future projects.
I don't think it's wholly a joke, but it is a jab at those who seemingly cannot live without having a CoC everywhere. Especially in projects, they do not actually participate in. Now watch as this gets blown out of proportion, because this will make some people really, really angry.
I truly hope this stays up!13
Before the storm - New Feminist Programming Language C+=
So before reading and raging on the box popoli post "the costs of a code of conduct" (thanks for linking @cursee ) I thought I'd share an awesome repository some Anon highlighted on 4chin/g.
I encourage you to read the README.md if you have been feeling depressed and/or mad with all this politics in programming bs.
"Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause From Its Code of Conduct"
I'll start this by saying that i am neutral to Linux. I don't hate it but sure as hell don't like it either. But this still pisses me off. Fucking leftists and feminists are dictating how the Linux community should operate and doing so in the most disgusting way possible.
Those cock haters claim they are for inclusiveness but then create a code of conduct that is against white males.
We never cared about race or gender before. But because of actions like this we are starting to treat people differently based on gender and race. It is like we are going backwards instead of progressing and this is because of their "progressive" ideas.
Fuck you, you are making programming not fun anymore.
For me, I'll keep calling a spade a spade and don't give a fuck about anybody's feelings. We all should be doing this to combat this dumb shit being shoved down our throats.
For reference, I'm talking about this https://lulz.com/linux-devs-threate...34
Debian team removed a package "weboob" due to anti-harassment policies. Quick, bring the popcorn!
Some people think that in the software industry there is no communication and everyone is glued to their screens doing their work. It really fucking pisses me off.
- We write documentation around our code more than actual code so that we can communicate with other developers better.
- We use version control and pull requests to make sure our work is at the required level and it is approved.
- We invented UML to communicate our technical understanding to less technical people.
- We sometimes have more client meetings than doctors have patients. In which we have deal with clients worse than patients.
- We conduct keynotes and conferences and hackathons to bring together communities.
These are just a few things from the top of my head so next time you think of saying that the IT or software professionals don't have "much" communication you better fucking educate yourself as to what the profession actually is.3
FUCK OFF with all this Code of Conduct/ Contributors Covenant BULLSHIT..... Coraline Ada Ehmke The stupid cunt ass tranny bitch started this bullshit.
Heres a crazy idea.... Focus on the god damn code and quit worrying about the other shit.
If you cant stand the heat get the fuck out of the kitchen....
I am sooooo fucken tired of this pansy ass cry baby SJW generation. All of them just need to be forced onto a judas chair... im afraid they would like it too much tho.
At this point there is'nt a law to prevent me from discriminating against Political Ideologies in employment. Its the only way to prevent your company from being infected by the virus.18
Sorry for another rant about Code of Conduct, i know there has been a lot since a week ago, i just had to come out with this somewhere it is killing me.
Hmmm this is going to be interesting: https://lulz.com/linux-devs-threate....
(Sorry i know this is sounding pretty pathetic and is low, but i had to get this out of my heart)
But tbh i am very sad to see how the CoC has started this big flame war between everyone. One of the few things that didnt make my mood go down was i could escape from all the hate, racism & sexism by going until the state where i programmed for like 2-12 hours straight where i didnt had to think about shit like "SJW & Politics". How the drama about CoC, the ones fighting for the CoC putting people based on colors & genders in difference boxes, maybe thats reason why racisim & sexism is growning, "we are fighting these 2 things with racism & sexism", maybe if people would start using logic instead of feelings on things like that.
Maybe i'm overdramatizing everything about the CoC, but i believe, if you make a specific group worthless because of their color or gender enough, you will either make some people hate the others or hate themselves. I used to care about people and had sympathy for people, now i dont really care about anyone else than my family and myself. The SJW speaks about how they have experience hate, but they wouldnt understand what true hate it til they "hate everything about themselves", until that hate turns to hate towards people and you will show low sympathy for people. I truly hope this witch hunting will die soon, if not its going to kill innovation, the great communitie where everyone is welcome. See all the rants calling the CoC shit out, makes me believe in the better for future.8
Sometimes devs are missing social skills. I felt that today.
I did not know the social code of conduct when leaving the hospital masurbitary room and meeting a colleage about to use the same room I just used.3
This new "code of conduct" ignores the larger problem on StackOverflow. Beginner programmers just aren't welcome. When I first started programming my questions were downvoted and deleted. Overtime I became a better programmer and I know how to write detailed questions. They are no longer downvoted, but they are not upvoted either. You have to be practically an expert for your question or answer to get upvoted and at that point you don't really need StackOverflow or Google...3
Be nice, they said.
StackOverflow should be more welcoming, they said.
C00lHoker99 is a new contributor. Be nice, and check out our Code of Conduct, they said.
Oh, for fucks sake...
Nobody is going to be nice to drunk hobo that shits in the middle of the library.
Duplicate, no MCVE, bluntly offtopic and "do my job plz asap" questions doesn't deserve any niceness from community.
If you feel like SO isn't welcoming, that's certainly your fault.
And what now? Instead of answering good questions and being **nice to nice fellows** we are swimming in Pacific Crapocean. Nnnnnniiiiiicccceeee3
The code of conduct is a good thing. It doesn't persecute cis white men. All it does is tell you not to harass people on the basis of traits they cannot control. You say you only care about code quality and nothing else? There's a whole untapped market of talent from women and lgbtq+ people who stay the fuck away because of toxic communities. When you call people faggot it makes them not want to contribute to your codebase.
Linus stepped down of his own volition to try to become a more constructive voice. Heaven forbid the assholes have some introspection.
Hate it because it's vague. Hate it because it means anyone can be banned without evidence. Don't hate it because the assholes are finally being called on their bullshit.19
In response to the fuss about the Linux kernel team contemplating a new Code of Conduct and revelations that Linus Torvald's daughter has sighed a cancerous "Post-Meritocracy Manifesto", I decided to help those who are pressured to provide a Code of Conduct for their service, project or conference but would like a sane one which doesn't involving bending over with a big red BULLSEYE around your arsehole.
Bad day for Linux, new Code of Conduit try to end meritocracy...
Spread the word...11
New StackOverflow Code of Conduct.
Seems like someone important see deviant posts about the community and how much it is appreciated, and took action.
I really thought writing code of conduct was easy. Oh, was I wrong.
So being a programmer I created The Code of Conduct Generator!
Even though it's really simple, it can be really helpful for launching a community or conference for the first time.
2018 in a nutshell
New privacy terms and conditions emails.
New code of conduct emails.
today i got stack overflow new code of conducts i have never laughed so hard.
So StackOverflow has a new code of conduct. Let's see if it's going to actually improve interactions there. https://stackoverflow.com/conduct2
Did anyone read this : https://contributor-covenant.org/ve... ?
I think it makes sense, that's what I'd expect any professional environment to enforce, sane workplace and all that, I don't see what the deal is.
It doesn't say you have to accept anything from anyone, it's just about not rejecting only on a racial, gender, etc... basis and to not be a dick in a general way. That's part of what HR is supposed to do in companies.
The whole thing applies to both maintainers and contributors.
Sure people are gonna try to abuse of the thing but that would be the case for anything.
What are your thoughts?
PS: the master/slave thing was bullshit IMO it's just a hierarchical construct in an engineering context.6
Can I just say that I don't understand the whole controversy behind the new Linux Code of Conduct... I just read through it (btw it's small enough to fit in a rant) and it looks like what I would consider basic decency rules to ANY professional setting...4
Just how the hell did we get here!? The culture war has no place in our community. People push their code under anon pseudonyms. When even.the normies are getting scared, you know we're in a very dark place.
