Stupid fucking project managers, just posting some slurry in Slack:
"User can't get into app!" _sends useless screenshot_
Yeah? And? I have no context on what time this was, what device, where, how, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
You want me to just telepathically jump to their location on earth, sniff the electromagnetic spectrum waves to sleuth out what exact requests they made and when to figure out what the problem is?
Just shut up. Shut up15
FUCK CORPORATE EMAIL SPAM
AND I DON'T MEAN SOME SOME EXTERNAL SCAM/AD/PISHING EMAILS
I MEAN THE SHIT MY OWN COMPANY SENDS TO ME
"tHE WelLbeIng Course : SiGN In now!!!!!"
"#MoRnIngcOfFEE witH SOME cORporatE TWAt"
"Give togetHER : LETs circLE JerK OurSeLveS in SOMe fuCKiNg oNLiNe mEetInG !!!!!!!"
I DON'T FUCKING CARE !
I GET DOZENS (IF NOT FUCKING HUNDREDS) OF SUCH SHIT EMAILS EVERY DAY.
IF I GO ON VACATION, I HAVE TO SPEND HOURS TO SORT SHIT OUT
I HAVE HAD TO SET UP ELABORATE OUTLOOK RULES TO GET IT SORTED AUTOMATICALLY INTO SOME MANAGEABLE FOLDERS (AND SPEND SOME OF MY LIMITED TIME, HERE ON EARTH, TO DO SO)
AND GUESS WHAT
THANKS TO THOSE STUPID RULES I MISSED, ONE FUCKING IMPORTANT EMAIL
CAN YOU JUST STOP FUCKING SPAMMING ME ?!!!
FOR CHRIST SAKE AND I DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS STUPID CORPORATE BULLSHIT
STOP SENDING IT TO ME8
Here I am trying to get some tickets for a theater, and I noticed an interesting thing. It seems that the website holds no session persistence. In other words it doesn't check to see if the user has stopped trying to order tickets, instead it holds the seats for about 30 minutes. This is kind of stupid because when you back out, your treated as a completely new session, you have no way of trying to get back the seats you had chosen.
Sooo, what does this mean? It means that I can start selecting a bunch of seats and continue selecting a bunch of seats. There appears to be no server-side checks to prevent someone from just booking the entire theater.
Soooooo, what does this mean? I could potentially spam the entire country's theaters (any that use this website as a booking system) and make it impossible for people to book seats through this website.
What do you guys think? Is this a bug or feature?7
Fuck all of those stupid fucking shitty spam and scam bots there is everywhere. I swear epsically on every single comment on youtube you would at least encounter one bot comment (thats if you are lucky) or on discord the amount of spam/scams you receive is ridiculous.
I swear everything i accidentially read any of that shit i lose the remining of my brain cells.
That should be a living proof of some human lives are completely worthless and why exeuction could be justified.
So if you are one of those kinds of people, who develop those kinds of bots, i have one thing to say. Fuck you and your inbreed incest familiy, i wouldnt call 911 on you, not even if you paid me a million dollars you human trashbag scum.8
Sometimes, I feel like these recruiters are just typing keywords, and spam people who fit.
I did one NodeJS project and I keep getting invited for an interview even though I have less than 3 months' worth of knowledge while the job description states 5 or more years of experience.3
the amount of micromanagement enforced in our scrum routine is getting ridiculous... but the PM seems to be happy with this14
The amount of stress you have in your life is directly proportional to the percentage of the screen the icons on your desktop cover up.
Prove me wrong.9
I am a no-nonsense, ads/marketing-hating person. I use adblockers on the web, modded apps on mobile, disable notifications for almost all the apps, and have the mobile on DND most of the time. I also send most of promotional and marketing emails to spam. the only ads and campaigns that are able to reach me are the forced native campaigns (i.e native ads in the news feed, social media feed, etc)
And I just joined a company whose main product is marketing for social media :/
This is not my first marketing domain company. I interned with video advert company also sometime back when I was a student. The work here in this domain is decent, not much is required since it's a B2B domain and whatever the library provider company couldn't provide, the B2C devs will hack and support on their own.
As a dev, I don't think most people like integrating ads, marketing channels, etc into their software. but being in presence of all the marketing stuff: growth, cohort, funnels audience, campaigns, retention... just ugh2
How many of us have had our downvoting privileges removed?
I know mine do nothing since it resets to 0 after leaving a spam rant.11
I love how stupid idiotic shit companies think their bullshit email spam abuse works. Hell no fuck off blind monkey fuckers. You sick fucks makes me sick. The only thing i hate more than normal company spam is when your shitty company (in this case Sound cloud) begs for money. Just because a meme of a platform like that that was only used by people to find leaked songs got bought by some shitty investment company. You will have to be the biggest idiot that has never existed to buy "premium" on a clear ineferrior platform that is clearly a joke compeared to serious music platforms.
But hey thank you for remining me to remove my accounts you begging rats. Hope nobody is dumb enough to support your shitty platform.8
Reason why I'll never apply to those fuckers. How hard is it not to fucking spam when you present yourself as a legitimate company?
I just report them as spam now lmao
!Dev related but still freelance.
So.. I do 3D stuff, scenes, animation and so on. The e-sport pub manager I know told me about this guy that wanted to start a local organizations around FIFA, hold tournaments at the pub and so on. He had some finance, contacts and needed a 3D scene of a stadium to highlight top placers as 3D Fifa cards.
Gotcha, so I hooked him up with said stuff, he was happy, manager was happy, first tournament went well. Now to the shit show:
He wrote to me a couple of days later asking if I'm up for more jobs, which k respectfully declined because l was on a bigger project that took about 2months to complete. Since that day, he spammed both me and the pub manager with request and wishes on wanting to do more.. and I mean SPAM!
Like the dude can't take a no, sorry. He tried to call on phone and messenger, messeged me several times / week and asked the manager of he heard from me.
Both the manager and I were perplexed of his attitude and after asking several times to stop and we both had other things for now (events / projects).. he.. he didn't stop. So.. blocked and that's that, right? Fuck now.. other clients of mine asked me if I knew of him because he tried to contact them to get to me.. like WTF?! How hard is it to take a no and move on?! Jesus.. client of hell in a nutshell2
Yo Vanessa? I like, appreciate your interest but can you not let your bots run wild?
On a more serious note: This has happened about 10 times already.
I'm dreading having spam on whatsapp when i go back to work. i wish people would just use email like sensible human beings3
Does anybody else find themselves resubscribed to email lists that they've unsubscribed from before? Seems like the only true permanent solution is to delete your account on these sites entirely. I think I'm losing my mind...5
Does anyone actually regularly reply to recruiter messages if they aren’t looking for a job? Seen a few posts where people get frustrated with them.
I haven’t been on LinkedIn for ages so I don’t know what I’ve got there but I still get random emails every week about various jobs. I just figure they’re part of a mass email and ignore them.
I’ve never had a recruiter refuse to put an application forward for a job because I didn’t reply in the past.5
Dear Gmail, you guys always claim to be the "best" free email provider, yet each week my inbox gets filled with spammy emails, even after marking those emails as spam for the past 1 year. I'm tired of your bullshits. Fucking fix it already!13
anti-spam for work recruiters?
anyone have a better method than collecting names and adding to an ever growing list?2
