@sheogorath Thanks I'll take this into account for future posts, but at the same time I'm not sure if I care anymore. I don't know, I'm so tired of limiting myself to be a corporate-acceptable robot. A part of being human is openly sharing what's on your mind, that's what I like most about social networks.
I have to be incredibly careful with what I say and how I say it, and also completely abstain from some subjects because it's just not worth the risk of my career.
Sometimes that means not correcting someone or even stifling healthy debate. It can be difficult.
Say no to professional robotism! 🤐
@sheogorath @Gina it only takes one slip up. Something said in anger, a misunderstood comment. If your profile is somehow linked to your employer and even remotely portrays them negatively, they tend to want to cut ties.
You see it regularly these days with: x said y on platform x - company has let them go.
I just err on the side of caution and stay away from highly contentious topics 😄
@Gina for me it's mainly because I don't think every random stranger has to know my personal stuff. And especially those who I blocked.
