Congratulations you sound like a 12-year old.



  • I had another great interview experience today. I met with the CIO and all I remember about him is that he cussed backwards and forwards, up and down, and every other way you can possibly imagine.

    If you are reading this Mr. Tough-Stuff CIO:

    All I can say is, way to go. You really came off sounding professional. Actually you sounded like a 12-year old who just learned some "bad" words. Real impressive. It really made me want to come work with your company, not to mention you in particular. I like working with people who cuss like sailors.

    I hope you're reading this and I hope you take offense by it. Maybe you'll think twice about cussing on the job again.

    Why don't you tell him that face-to-face? Anyway, congratulation, thanks to TubeRodent you are no longer Public Enemy #1.

    I vote to boicott the "other guy", and keep C.P. as #1. He is funnier, and even though I'm the full sleves tatoos on both arms guy that want's to kill, rape and pilleage every office I work at, I still like him better.

    I'm also the cheap labor foreignerer taking jobs from decent "europeans" (and raping and killing and stealing from every place I work at), but C.P. prejudices and neurotic manias, are more lovable.

    He doesn`t seem full of hate and anger like the "other guy". C.P is maybe a little scared of the real world.

    C.P also seems genuinely interested in sharing his wacko adventures (and researching for his screenplay, and maybe provoking a little bit).

    But the "other guy" is way more trollish, pushing his agenda in your face, in a violent way, attracting people to his blog, with the absolute truth, etc..

    We just don't know what we have until we loose it.. so VOTE CPound, let's keep him.

    BTW CPound, this time your adventure description was a little weak. We need more details dude.

     He may be CPound, but he's our cpound.



  • C#!   C#!    VOTE FOR C#!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     That being said:

    CPound,

     Seeing that he is the CIO, he pretty much has the power to create whatever kind of work environment he wants.  If he wants a cussing crass workplace then that's fine, you don't have to work there.  Trust me, many of us have worked in places similar and thought it was just fine. 



  • Hmm, I was thinking of voting for a third party, but I couldn't help but be reminded of:

    "It's a two party system, you have to vote for one of us!"

    "Maybe I'll vote for a third party!

    "Go ahead, throw away your vote!"



  • Hmmm... the small number of answer seems to indicate that only a few people appreciate trolls.

    Nah, we're too busy laughing :) 

    Add one more vote for CPound!  I see him as more of the "I caught a fish <----this----> big!" storyteller than a troll.

    You too?  Wow, what a coincidence!  I was at a customer site a couple weeks ago and the guy was using bad words left, right, and centre!  Well, I wasn't going to take that!  I reprimanded him on the spot and walked out with my head held high.


    Oh wait a minute.  No I didn't.  I did my work, left with a smile, and sent the bill for my services.  Hahahahahahahaha (<-- me laughing on the way to the bank).



  • Oh, and I vote to keep C# as antagonist #1, he's way too much fun to let go!



  • C# for president!!!. (Of a small micro-nation that nobody cares about)



  • @stratos said:

    I'm afraid our president won't retire that early. 



  • My vote is definitely for CPound, his amusing stories brighten my day
    when i take a breaks from the thuggery and violence i perpetrate in my
    office on a daily basis(i swear it's the piercings that make me do
    it).  Although i think some kind of mutant lovechild of CPound and
    TunnelRat would be amusing.   TunnelPound which combines Cpounds neurotic
    delusions with TunnelRat's racism and tendency towards violence.

    "I hope you're reading this and I hope you take offense by it. Maybe you'll think twice about cussing on the job again." -CPound

    Wow you sure showed him.  And he misses out on getting to work with you, double zinger, are you sure you're not being too hard on the guy?

    Seriously though, imagine TunnelPounds response, it may have even lead to physical violence, Awesome.

    If a CIO at a company wants to swear though, it's his company and he can say what he likes, assuming it's not racist/sexist i suppose. If the guy is swearing in front of clients at meeting etc. i guess that would be a bit weird but in the office with just the employees it's hardly going to be a problem.  I think CPound is too easily offended and may need to get himself some of those things men have....ummm balls yeah that's it balls.  I guess we'll have to add swearing to the list of things that offends CPounds delicate sensibilities.  Anyone else get the impression CPound has had a very sheltered life.  Although i do realise there are a some cultural differences with swearing in the au not taking a job solely based on the fact you might have to soil your ears with a few swear words would be considered a bit pissweak.

     

    By way of comparison i've compiled some properties of each: 

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess(based on this and previous posts) that CPound is the following,
    White - was there ever any doubt
    Christian - you know with a tude like that he's gotta be close to the big man
    Middle Class - i'm guessing he isn't a billionaire
    American - duh
    Republican - 'cos they don't like people that don't mea the previously listed criteria
    Homophobic - why can't they just be straight?
    Racist but wouldn't admit it - 'cos he's too worried about someone hearing
    Totally scared of the world - we all know it
    Has neurotic delusions - and lots of them
     

    Just a guess but i reckon it will be pretty close to the mark, 'cos i think it shows.

     
    Where as TunnelRat is

    White - was there ever any doubt

    Christian - I'm guessing he isn't a bhuddist

    Middle Class - this guy can't keep a job it would seem, so i reckon he just scrapes into this category

    American - and way too proud of it

    Republican - 'cos the KKK is technically illegal

    Homophobic - fear of his own repressed sexuality

    Racist and would admit it - and at every opportunity

    Totally hates the world - Why is he always right and the world always wrong
    Loves Violent Movies - way too much
    Has violent fantasies - way too much
     

    On paper i think TunnelRat wins but i think i'll always have a soft spot for CPound, his meekness, impotence and inneffectualness seem to make him just that little bit more likeable than TunnelRat

    Long Live CPound 


     

     



  • I guess everyone that hates people is a Republican now...

    Also, a lot of your guesses are pretty freaking boring.  OMFG, you think they are white?!?!?!  That's really going out on the limb to guess that they are probably part of the majority.  Hint:  most people are part of the majority.

     



  • I vote we keep CPound.  TunnelRat is just a racist, a bigot and an arrogant prick (although I do admit his blog is fun to read) who thinks that everyone in the world except him is an idiot, and needs to be banned posthaste.



  • @tster said:

    Well, Republicans hate everybody.... it's almost the same thing.

     

    Hint:  most people are part of the majority.

    Last time I checked, the majority was Chinese.



  • Element0, you are some sort of  fucking (whoops cpound may be reading) genius.

    Another property you could have added would be - which of the two is more likely to come to work and go crazy with a gun?

    They are both candidates, and I reckon it's the same person/troll. Tunnel Rat is cpounds more violent/dumber alter ego.

    I like them both, and cpound should have a blog too. The story on tunnelrats blog about scope_identity() was a cracker.

    Those meanies in the office were being so cruel, they just so asked to be written up in tunnelrat's widdle blog.
     



  • @tster said:

    Except people that hate republicans i guess
    no it's just that the republican are the more right wing of the major u.s. parties, right wing people usually don't like foreigners, just the way it is.

    They weren't meant to be interesting, just observations, and i think it's worth noting that neither of them has actually ever said they are white but you seem to find it ridiculous that they would be anything else.  I think that in itself is worthy of considering.  Also saying that whites are the majority i assume you're talking about the site rather than the world.  I suppose you may be right, i'd never really considered it but the site's in english and most english speaking countries are mostly white so it's probably a fair call.  Hint: doing the "Hint:" thing is really lame



  • obviously I'm referring to the site.  No, I wouldn't find it amazing it they were not white, but yes, I think they are white.  Simply because they are on this site talking about software engineering leads me to believe this.    Most (not all) nerds are white...



  • Please folks, let's stay on topic here. This post is about CP not liking a dirty mouth dudeboss.

    God, you guys can't stay on topic.
    What is this world coming to, when an internet forum thread disperses like this?

    Next thing someone would mention Hitler... and.. Ooops.. too late... Damn.. see what you make me do?

    AListApart's web designer survey showed 84.6% of web designers as White, with Asian coming in second at 6.6%.  So, yeah.  It's not a crime to at least assume that your average nerd is White or White-ish :).



  • Get with the times, CPound!!!

    Didn't you see that [url=http://comm.uea.ac.uk/press/release.asp?id=792]new study[/url] that concludes cussing at work at your normal comfort level is good for team solidarity, morale, etc?

    My guess is your CEO and I have our fingers on the pulse of business 2.0. He sounds like a straight-up, no-nonsense motherfucker.

    Sorry but this is just a pet-peave  of mine. But web designers are NOT web developers. Those artistic folk with big stylish glasses and a mac, those are designers. The gruffy long haired guy fiddling with a pen while listening to aggressive music and staring at the monitor while occasionally attacking the keyboard with vigor, ending in looking smug en sipping his coffee. That's a developer (or at least one of the arch-types of developers).

    Although on the real issue you where talking about, i would have to say that most developers will probably be white.



  • So who would win a lightsaber duel, CPound or TunnelRat?



  • I sense a certain amount of white male Christian bashing here. 

    BTW, I am an agnostic objectivist upper class Republican. 

    And as far as I know, judging by all the gays I have no problem socializing with, I am not Homophobic. 

    But there was that one time that gay neighbor came over with a bunch of pot.  We smoke a bit, and then he wants me to go into my little bathroom with him so that he can explain how he plans on growing pot in the tub.  Not wanting to be rude, I follow along.  And then he shuts the door, and we are standing in this tiny bathroom.  WTF?  So I just said "I need another beer" and walked out.  Yeah, yeah, I am sure you folks thought it was going to be like the scene in American Beauty, where I couldn't control myself and end up making out with him, but nope. 

    FYI, my wife and I ended up becoming good friends with him and his partner and vacationing with them in Mexico for a few years. 

    So, I can't really agree with the homophobic charge, but I do have an issue with all those gays in the fashion industry getting to pick the models -- WTF!  Who ever said a skinny ass bitch that looks like she just got out of Auschwitz is hot?  Jeez -- those models look like 12-year boys!  Its freakin' sick.  Come on gay guys, get some models with tits and asses.  We straight guys are sick of looking at what you think is hot.

    I think ALA explicitly, for the purposes of the survey and an older article, defined web designers to include webdevelopers. The people who, as a whole, design & shape the web.

    AMEN BROTHER! Long live Sofia Loren, Marilyn, Bettie, and many more real WOMEN. Hell! (sorry CP) bring back Cindy Crawford's and the like, when women had tits (can I say that?) and hips, and asses and didn't look about to break or throw up on you.

    Now where do I stand? I mean I agree with something "the other guy" has said.
    Does this make me white republican agnostic upper class? Or am I still a poor-ass broken immigrant anarchist? (soon to be filthy rich- This is from my metaphisycs coach)

    Am I betraying C0.435Kg? 

    I still like C1.44€ (today's exchange rate) better, but my heart is now clouded with doubts. OtherGuy has show he is human, and he has a heart.

    Damn I hate this binary world... is so confusing.



  • From the PDF they published:

    We called this a “web design” survey, but it really describes all kinds of web professionals, not just designers—and all kinds of web professionals, not just designers, completed the survey. We plan to change the survey’s name next year to include a larger group of our respondents.

    I don't really mind either way, as long as the meaning of the term is defined by the document or the survey.
     



  • Uh..who gives a fuck?  Every place I've ever worked has had a few people who cussed like sailors.  It sure beats being in an environment where you have to constantly watch your back and worry about everything you say.



  • Yes, that would be called San Francisco. Or any college.  Plus most non-profits.

    Uh-oh, I just read Tunnel-rod'd blog. It's pretty good - I share his dislike of tattooed and pierced wimps. Anyone w/ tatts should be a truly mean-ass hard fucker like me. Piercing is for pervs.

    So now a dilemma - who's my fave troll? duh.... dunno. Both are ok I s'pose.

    TR - you have a point. The radical fems have spent years bashing straight guys for "forcing" girls to become anorexic in order to cater to average healthy male. But the actual blame lies with the gays in the fashion biz.

    It works like this:

    Q. What do gay fashion males like?

    A. Teenage boys.

    So what do they do? They choose ridiculously skinny teenage girls who look a lot like skinny teenage boys. I have news for the radical fems - try checking out the top shelf of your local news vendor if you want to know what hetero males go for. You won't find many skinny bicycle-framed girls up there.

    I'm throwing my vote in for C£.  While I may agree with TubeRodent about runway models, I don't find his posts entertaining to read--I guess I just don't go in for long, racist rants by a guy who wouldn't know a Real Operating System(tm) if it pissed on him, and is certainly one of the worst managers I've ever heard of.
