The frankest, most raw and truthful observations about employment and work life in the IT and engineering fields are in "members only" sections that are ONLY visible when you are registered and you log in.

If you're 35 or over, and work in IT, or are retired from IT, and you dislike the herd mentality and clueless, adolescent snobbery of forums such as "Hacker News", then you really should join this board. Why? Because you're too smart for Facebook. And everyone needs someone to gossip, commisserate, and chat with at their level.

Who we are:

A collection of IT, engineering and sciences professionals, in a variety of current circumstances with a variety of career backgrounds. Including:

  • System admins
  • Developers and programmers
  • Freelancers and "gig" entrepreneurs
  • Contract, job shopping and FTE-employed contract house IT workers
  • Web developers
  • Inventors
  • Artists and writers with tech backgrounds

This forum has its roots in the 1990s buildup of the IT field into what we know today and has been around since 2002. 10s of thousands of messages and threads about a variety of career, FTE, contract, and side gig issues and opportunities.

If you're as smart as the typical experienced IT professional, you have a critical mind that has a hard time staying engaged with pop culture and generic issues of the day. And you're WELL beyond the fanboy mentality of the young developer communities. Get some relief here.

I don't think this should be allowed without notifying users "clearly".  No one reads all the terms and conditions of most apps where they probably bury something like this revelation or bog it down with legalese. They hide their intentions behind legal crap language.

How about if they say up front, "we're reading your (private?) emails to develop a better product".  Would you sign up for an app that stated that?  Maybe I might if it was a benign kind of thing, but otherwise, no.  Still, people have a right to know what they're signing up for, clearly stated and the terms and conditions legalese crap just doesn't cut it.

It isn't a surprise that some of our information is used for data analytics by Google, but third parties reading or data mining our personal email  conversations is an invasion of privacy, IMO.  I might have agreed to let Google have some info, but thats it.
