The fact that voat.co is pretty much an identical reddit clone just demonstrates that in terms of the technical platform provided, there isn't much novelty about anything the management does.

Reddit's open-source - I strongly suspect there's more than a little of Voat that is entirely cloned from Reddit (although Voat's written in a different language).

Depending on the result with France , the game between Greece and Iceland gets weird

If its a 0-0 draw or either side wins , they *both* go out
If its a score draw , they go to penalties for one of them to go through

I find the daily 'commute observation' threads on /r/London strangely compelling. It's a bit like the creepy 'I saw my one true love on the Tube yesterday' column in 'Metro', but covering a wider range of glimpses of contemporary life. I don't even live in London.

That looks like an interesting read but I can't go any further as I'm using Adblock. Pah.

Adblock is the crappy choice nowadays - uBlock Origin is where it's at.

Anyway, here's the original file they link to:

Important bits

Quote:
Organizations and Conferences

Insist on doing everything through "channels." Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions.

Make "speeches." Talk as frequently as possible and at great length. Illustrate your "points" by long anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences.

When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committee as large as possible - never less than five.

Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions.

Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open the question of the advisability of that decision.

Advocate "caution." Be "reasonable" and urge your fellow-conferees to be "reasonable"and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.

Managers

In making work assignments, always sign out the unimportant jobs first. See that important jobs are assigned to inefficient workers.

Insist on perfect work in relatively unimportant products; send back for refinishing those which have the least flaw.

To lower morale and with it, production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions.

Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.

Multiply the procedures and clearances involved in issuing instructions, pay checks, and so on. See that three people have to approve everything where one would do.

Employees

Work slowly.

Contrive as many interruptions to your work as you can.

Do your work poorly and blame it on bad tools, machinery, or equipment. Complain that these things are preventing you from doing your job right.

Never pass on your skill and experience to a new or less skillful worker.

My place of work is not like that.

Apart from the bits I control.
