Google exec threatens whistleblowers

Urs Hölzle, Senior Vice President at Google, is determined to hunt down every employee who isn't 100 percent SJW-converged.
Sometimes, like yesterday, I am…saddened? taken aback? disgusted? by the thought that there are Googlers coming to work filled with gate towards their colleagues. I’m not even sure what adjective to use….but it’s sad. No matter the topic, there’s just no room for hate at Google.

But then again, I remind myself that 99.99% of our colleagues do not fall into that group, and that we can’t let a small fraction of employees dominate our thoughts, feelings, and culture. That makes me hopeful that we can overcome the attempts to create a culture of hate and fear.

But that is little comfort to the Googlers who are being doxxed or harassed. I hope we will identify those behind this reprehensible conduct. All Googlers are responsible for upholding a workplace and culture that is free of harassment, discrimination, misconduct, bullying, and retaliation.
So tragic, all these gate-filled Googlers. Of course, if Google wants to uphold a workplace free of harassment, discrimination, misconduct, bullying, and retaliation, the very first person they should fire is Urs Hölzle. The man is a genuinely nasty little thought-Nazi, full of the very worst kinds of gate.


Urs, did you really not realize that everything that passes through your corporate communication system gets leaked outside now? Just because outsiders don't post very much of it doesn't mean they don't have it. You see, even your employees who are on the Left are totally freaked out by their legitimate concerns about what sort of insanity you lunatic SJWs are going to get up to next. They know it's only a matter of time before you go after them as well. Once you root out the evil 0.01 percent, it's on to the next 0.1 percent undsoweiter.

Sure, you've got access to all our emails and our browser histories. We know that. But are you absolutely certain that we don't have yours? Beware the many heads of the Medusa!

By the way, Wired's Nitasha Tika denied coordinating her story, which SJWS at Google are circulating inside the company to try to intimidate suspected whistleblowers, with Jessica Guynn of USA Today. Just another one of those mysterious coincidences that seem to happen *COUGHGAMEJOURNOPROS* from time to time whenever SJW interests intersect, right? Actually, she is telling the truth, because it was a very small group of Google-SJWs coordinating their defense by press who were responsible for the near-simultaneous appearance of the articles.

Amateur effort, really. Even the SJWs at Tor managed to drum up international coverage from Entertainment Weekly to the New Zealand Herald after we blew up the Hugos the first time. But, as we've learned, the grunts at Google aren't nearly as smart as they think they are.

Speaking of which, this email made me laugh.
I think you meant Hydra not Medusa in your Google post.  The hydra was a multi headed serpent.  Medusa looked like a cross between Grendel’s mother and Hillary Clinton.
You don't say....

As Damore's suit unfolds, the likelihood of a shareholder lawsuit rises. This craziness surely lowers shareholder value. As things become established facts in a court of law, rather than rumour or a leak (which might or might not be authentic) these management sjw types are going to have a serious problem.

Blogger NO GOOGLES February 01, 2018 1:28 PM  

I see your comment.

Anyways, it really is a pathological need for these people to see themselves as the righteous fighting against the evil establishment. They refuse to acknowledge that THEY are the establishment, and their actions are suppression (or even their favorite buzzword, oppression) against people who just don't agree with them.

I have heard theories saying that SJWs act pathologically in this way because it is the only surefire way they can convince themselves that they are good. That's why they create conflict - pretending that they are on the right side of the conflict is psychologically necessary for them.

Blogger Cataline Sergius February 01, 2018 1:33 PM

The Canary Trap thing is interesting to me... I would materially change words, phrases, CC'd persons lists, dates, etc. myself if I was leaking documents.

And now it's occurring to me that you don't have to wait until a converged company starts witchhunting thought criminals. If you have the guts to blow the whistle early and brave the NDA breach, you can go on the offensive. Waging a psychic guerilla war inside the company, gently nudging them towards cutting out the converging cancer before a PR situation develops. There's a lot of potential there.

Assuming for a minute that Urs speaks without exaggeration, 99.99% of the approximately 62,000 Alphabet employees is 61,994. So that leaves six employees to be needles in the haystack. Given Google’s ruthlessness and sophistication, these few are truly heroic in every sense of the word.

It would be hilarious if there was some attempt to send coded messages into Google HQ (much like coded radio signals sent to the French Resistance during WWII). Emails and blog posts with obscure quotes from Victor Davis Hanson books? Small drones flying random patterns visible through the Google cafeteria windows? Physical snail mail; travel postcards mailed to random individuals inside the Googolplex with a nonsense phrase and "Wish you were here" and no return address? (a PO Box in Italy would be far too obvious). If they are paranoid now, the effect of apparent (or real) attempts to communicate to insiders will cause meltdowns....

Mensa seemed like a waste of time to me. Just $40 but that's a lot to a teenager in a poor, Appalachian shithole.
What's your experience with it? If it's converged like Google I'm guessing there's not much value there. There are enough thought-Nazis out there already.

Also the people I've seen in Mensa seemed ridiculous. Ok so people have high I.Q.s. That they are fat/stick figures, socially oblivious/obnoxious, physically/mentally ill doesn't get the emphasis it should. It's risky if a man ends up over 135. Some men can be like VD and play sports and be leaders with higher I.Q.s than that, but there's just too much risk for for most people being completely underdeveloped in some other area of life, especially if intellectual development is compensation for some other massive, developmental deficiency. Just seems like a downer associating with the "geniuses." That could just be out of ignorance on my part, though.

Just disgusting. Our childhoods aren't safe from these people. If they had the decency to invent their own awful franchise it would be more tolerable. They need to ruin it for everyone else, though. One more place where an unwanted dindu ruins the setting.

software developer at Valve arrested, likely for child porn

Seattle police detective Patrick Michaud confirmed to Ars that Cliffe was arrested at the jail itself, which public records show happened at 1:17 am Pacific Time, and that no charges had yet been filed.
...
KIRO pointed out, according to its sources at the King County Prosecutor's office, that a booking over such charges "typically indicates" the creation of child porn.


notice that he was arrested at the jail at one AM.

sounds to me like they booked him in after a long interrogation.

assuming it's not Fake News, of course.

EXACTLY!! I'm starting to get freaked out with this crap... Isn't anything on Google worth this shit.

Agreed...signed, a nobody but, soon-to-be off of Google for good...

Mensa is a club for folks with moderate IQ's to get together and talk to each other/do things. As such you'll want to make sure there's a chapter somewhere in your area before you waste your money.

Mensa is a club for midwits. There are more than a few VHIQ individuals here, I don't think any have maintained a Mensa membership. The few who have tried it found it not to their liking.

Danby @105: "There are more than a few VHIQ individuals here, I don't think any have maintained a Mensa membership. The few who have tried it found it not to their liking."

My parents insisted on it so I could build up my extra-curricular dossier for official purposes.

I didn't give a toss about it, so I showed up to an exam on day two of severe flu whilst drunk on a flask of cheap whisky I'd dyed green and called "Irish cold medicine". I absolutely refused to let the examiners take it away from me, and I suppose they let me keep it figuring that at the very least, I'd be labouring with a substantial handicap.

I don't remember getting much out of the membership in terms of physical stuff except for a yellow-headed map pin that I eventually used for some unsanctioned but tolerated B&E activities. The ironmongery near me still has a small stock of these things should I decide I want to crash a Mensa meeting.

I do remember the single word impression I got from their only meeting I'd attended: anoraks.

There are far better people to go drinking with, and they won't typically try to take away your bottle of cheap green-dyed Irish rotgut. :-)

That is exactly what I found.  Lots of leftist politics, no interesting conversation, no girls worth dating.  Everyone plays Yahtzee at the regional gatherings.

The VHIQ tend to wind up in science fiction fandom, e.g. ESR.

Simply put, yes. Not worth the

I read that 3Xs, thinking what word was this supposed to be?

Are their any actual American stock Americans that work at Google, or is just foreigners & Johnny come latelys?
I never see a name or a pic of a person from there, whose family has been in the country longer that 50-100 yrs or so.

I'm shocked, shocked beyond words, that (((Steve Wynn))) is a pervert. I've been keeping very detailed written lists of every single reported accusation of the #MeTooism I have been able to find, since it started in October. The last time I did the math on it, back in mid-Dec, the Jews were winning with 87% of all accusations, with black men coming in next, followed by a group of what I call, "ethnic men of color," with white Anglo men taking the smallest remaining few % points.
