In the News "An incident at the annual Python developer conference has led to allegations of sexism, death threats, the firings of two people, and - apparently - multiple DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks." Absolutely bizarre.

I'm sure this will be a long thread, because it's something where everyone has an opinion ;-). Here's mine:

Some people don't understand the gravity of careless behavior in public social media. It may be ok if you don't have a job, but if you have, be aware that your actions can, in various ways, hurt your employer, and your future options.

I keep hearing the "hurt the employer" argument and frankly, I think it's bu11_sh1t.

Perhaps if someone is senior management muses out loud about internal production problems or change in strategy, there might be repercussions on the markets but off-color jokes?

Insensitive and offensive remarks have been made by all sorts of people. Donald Trump called the Chinese leadership a bunch of m0th3rfuck3rs and disrespected his own President - what has that cost him?
Did NBC drop The Apprentice because of anything he's said or done?
