#GitLab's director of Global Risk & Compliance, Candice Ciresi, has resigned.
Her resignation email was censored.
@dredmorbius noo, Gitlab, you were the chosen one!
@rysiek Don't get me started.
@dredmorbius seriously though, what's going on with Gitlab. They've been making a lot of these kind of bad decisions lately...
@rysiek And/or we've just started noticing.
@dredmorbius true. But some of these decisions where rollbacks of previous good decisions. Like the "no ethics vetting, also no politics discussed at work" thing.
@dredmorbius huh. This brings me some hope: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/10/17/gitlab_reverse_ferret/
@dredmorbius over such a stupid issue.
“Oh no it is an outrage not to put people living in dictatorships in sensitive positions” well duh
@szbalint That principle is fairly sound.
It's the picking and choosing of what are considered nontenable dictatorships, and wy and how, which seems to be at issue.
Also: VC and revenues.
Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
