  • Posted to Sponsor: Vanguard by Baron Fig — A Softcover Notebook Designed for Greatness, Now Available in Three Sizes, Aug 15, 2016

    My only problem with this notebook was the cover and how easy it was to mark by accidental scruffing. I marked the cover within the first 3 days of having it and it looks really unpleasant to keep holding and carrying around so I went back to my moleskine.

    This post is actually showcasing some good criticism on Dribbble, which normally doesn't happen. I don't know why it makes you laugh.

    Feels weird watching that much money changing hands when you know nothing positive will come from it to help Linkedin be a better service and not be a nightmare to use.

    Don't believe I put words in anyone's mouth. I used direct quotes.

    My thought process doesn't generalize, " I think even middle class straight white males brings different perspectives to a team. At least that’s my experience. " into "In my opinion, teams of just straight white men are enough." and that's where we differ. =/

    Of course it's limited, but that's not what this quoted user seems to be saying until you assume biased information. He states "even middle class straight white males bring different perspectives to a team" The user is LITERALLY only suggesting that middle class white males bring different perspectives to a team. This quote is then being lumped in with shit like this - " What a huge pussy you are. I bet you’re the kind of guy to say you’re a feminist in your Twitter bio."

    But do you see how many biased assumptions you have to make to come to that conclusion?

    I guess my privilege is preventing me from seeing how stating that middle class white males can bring different perspectives to a team is a privileged statement.

    • How is this negative? Some of the quoted posts on this blog seem a little over the top.
