    [–] In Case You Didn't Know the Past of These Legends: Artosis, Tasteless, Day 9, at WCG 2005 _pulsar 2 points ago in starcraft

    I always preferred husky. Something about day9 just annoyed the shit out of me but obviously I respect the hell out of him.

    [–] Guy gets fired even though he was doing great at his job because the employer didn't want to get into trouble for canning a woman, who was surfing the web instead of doing her work. _pulsar 0 points ago in MensRights

    I tend to agree. If they were so worried about being sued, why would they tell a fired employee any of that stuff?

    Otoh, most of the people calling this fake are quick to defend all anecdotes from a woman, no matter how ridiculous, and they call anyone who questions the account sexist.

    [–] If you hired a woman because she’s a woman, that’s sexism and you’re part of the problem. _pulsar 1 points ago in unpopularopinion

    Give disadvantaged people more than others so they can rise to the same level as everyone else.

    But they usually don't rise to the same level as everyone else. Some black leaders who were against affirmative action in college admissions called this decades ago. If you let someone into a school and they aren't prepared for the workload, they fail and all that does is make them feel worse about themselves.

    So they should hire an under/less qualified candidate because they had a rough childhood? That doesn't make good business sense and causes a host of other problems. You're then asking the rest of your employees to pick up the slack of the under qualified candidate which will breed resentment.

    I'm sure situations like what OP described exist, but to consider them prevalent is hyperbole imho.

    Women enjoy a 2:1 hiring preference over men in STEM fields. Ex Amazon recruiters admitted they were given bonuses for hiring people who aren't white males, and some were specifically told they already have enough white men on their teams so don't even bother scheduling interviews with more of them. Google is being sued left and right for discrimination against white men.

    Which is funny because if it did actually, the problem of minority under representation would have already been fixed.

    Wrong. First there would have to be enough non white male candidates to fill all the open roles and there just aren't enough to go around, especially when every company is desperately trying to hire as many as possible.

    [–] Three cheetahs take down female ostrich _pulsar 2 points ago in natureismetal

    My worst nightmare is being stuck in a small enclosure that is filled with ostriches.

    But what's your overall point? You want to somehow restrict cheese options? Or have a separate ladder for players who agree not to cheese?

    I mean yeah obviously your skill edge is slightly less when facing an unknown players who cheeses, but that just part of the game.

    [–] I can't do Terran macro. How do you guys spend your money? _pulsar 1 points ago in AllThingsTerran

    During longer macro games how many of each production facility should I have? (roughly)

    You're saying that better players have a higher chance of losing to worse players if the worse player cheeses. Okay, so what?

    They'll still lose to the better player more often than not, and if all they do is cheese then any "advantage" they had diminishes with each game.

    Seriously I can't believe people are actually claiming there's such a thing as a "dishonorable" build.

    Where is your honor, good sir?!

    Lmao

    [–] Gab.com goes down in wake of Pittsburgh shooting, after far-right social network is dropped by tech companies _pulsar 1 points ago in news

    You keep saying that they're trying to silence left leaning professors.

    If a person who works at Microsoft tweets, "black people are dumber than white people", is asking Microsoft to fire that person "attempting to take away their free speech"? Yes or no?

    [–] [News] The Simpsons Executive Producer Al Jean responds to claims Apu is leaving _pulsar 2 points ago in KotakuInAction

    When you think about it, it’s pretty amazing how effective the “alt-right = Nazis” meme really is.

    Not that "amazing" imo because 98% of mainstream media is pushing this narrative.

    I agree with you. I just thought it was odd to single out one sub when there are plenty of subs on the "other side" that are just as bad if not worse.
