Apparently you were confused by the term "men". You are thinking of the term "pansies".

Let me clue you in. Men don't cry over someone flirting with them. Pansies, such as yourself, do. If the worst thing to ever happen to me at work was the gay boss hit on me, I'd consider myself lucky. I wonder if any of you feminists have jobs that don't involve promoting some kind of bullshit "awareness". Bet you've never done a days work in your life.

WA WA WEE WA, YOU A REAL MAN, YES? HIGH FIVE!

@ Orogogus

What isn't clear to me is if the behavior continued after the woman made it clear it was unwanted and considered inappropriate. That is what would constitute illegal harassment as far as I understand the law. As the lawyer explained, it only becomes illegal after it continues past the notification.

See paragraph 76 of the Complaint and Summons linked in the article. It says she complained "throughout the course of her employment". Whether or not that is true will come out in the case, but fabricating claims is a pretty serious deal and any halfway decent lawyer wouldn't allow it, so I'd be surprised if it was false. Also paragraph 85 describes a harassing comment made after the email was sent. It also continues in paragraph 88.

Uh, I believe he owns the company.

As an aside, I wonder what people would think about this presented from a different perspective. Reverse the genders, and now tell me what guy would be crying over their multi-millionare female boss flirting with them...

(I'm assuming he is a multi-millionare, I don't know his actual worth. Someone in the know can enlighten me here.)

If it is unwanted, it is harassment, no matter what genders are involved.

Pretty sure just about every labor company hiring illegal mexicans beat you to the punch there. Oh sorry, you were trying to be witty. Guess you weren't aware that there is a world outside. Oh, and guess you weren't aware that that there is a world outside of the US, as well. Enjoy living in your little bubble. Minimum wage, hah.

Pretty sure your grandma would slap the shit out of you for crying over someone sending you a sex quiz link compared to some of the stuff she probably endured and didn't complain about. Grow a pair.

I'm going to hire someone and pay them less than minimum wage. Then when they complain, I'm going to tell them "oh boohoo, we used to have slaves here. Be glad you are getting paid anything." Wow, I can't believe nobody has thought of this before! I'll save so much money!

Everything is part of culture, if you exclude the trash, you are just setting yourself up for future trash,, because if no bad examples of past exist, how do you think people in 50 years will know how NOT to make identical trash all over again?

People don't produce trash because they don't know any better. They produce it because it sells. Pop culture is 99% worthless crap because the sole purpose of it is to make money, and to do that you pander to the lowest common denominator.

Most people that rag on IE do because it's cool to rag on MS. I have no use for that sort of hipster douchebag mentality.

Actually most people that rag on IE8 and previous do so because they are shitty browsers that were obsolete before they were even released and set back the progress of web technologies by several years. IE10 is actually a good browser and you won't hear me hate on it at all. But hey, enjoy the company of all the 60-year-olds running eMachines browsing the web as if it was still 2006.

Most people use IE8. Between blocking 3rd party cookies and using the private browser I don't need another browser. And I actually prefer it over other browsers. IE9 sucks though, and I hear 10 is even worse. Firefox is ok but awkward and Chrome is just horribly clumsy and ugly.

pffhfhahahahahaha

Who the fuck doesn't support IE8?

A better question is, who the fuck still uses IE8 in 2012?

http://www.mozilla.org
https://www.google.com/chrome
http://www.opera.com

Take your pick.

On a side note that Android figure seems extremely low. You're selling millions of handsets a month and the overall figure is only $550 million? That seems way off.

Seems right to me. Most Android apps are not worth paying for (largely a result of how frustrating Android is to develop for and the poor quality control of Android MarketGoogle Play), and Android phones generally target a low-income, younger demographic that may not have the means to pay for apps. This is compounded by the fact that there are no Android MarketGoogle Play gift cards.

MS has removed the ability to go to classic windows mode from windows 8 to lock in everyone into the new metro UI (in other words, dumbing down PC's to make them closer to phone/tablet style). Everything is going to be full screen now. I don't even know why they bother to call it "windows" anymore. So yeah, if stardock can restore some of that, then they will make a pile of money.

Maybe you should try the Windows 8 Preview before you make yourself look like a fool.

Huffington post has an amazing crap-ware video player on their site that when you press pause to silence it (besides it automatically starting) does not actually pause nor silence the damn thing. Blocked the whole player, good riddance.

The problem is that you were reading the Huffington Post.

Yeah, I have no idea how it figures out the host but it seems like it prefers people based on connection quality (upload speed and NAT quality most likely). After getting cable Internet I would almost always be made the host after the original host would leave a game, even in large games, but I was not so lucky with earlier connection types.

Team Mafiya Work with team blips enabled is actually quite enjoyable especially with a decent team and good settings, but it does have some serious bugs that crop up from time to time. I think I might download this again and give it another go tomorrow.

GTA IV uses peer-to-peer matchmaking through GFWL, not dedicated servers, so I don't think that is the case here.

Thats assuming cheaters create a new steam account for each game they buy/play/cheat-on... something that I think is rather unlikely... people are stupid, and cheaters are the definition of stupid.

Cheaters are stupid but they are often very persistent. You would be amazed at what some cheaters will do in order to continue cheating after being banned.
