Here is a logical loop for funzies.

Someone got fired for stating his opinion that someone shouldn't be fired for their opinion.

http://kotaku.com/community-manager-fir ... 1570567303

'Merica.

Now. I think any transaction (being hired, in this case) should be canceled if the transaction is no longer in the interests for one of the two parties... which could be any reason or non-reason, but...

Wouldn't this be a violation of discrimination laws (the "creed" part), because the firing is discrimination towards a creed of non-discrimination towards discrimination? (Or, perhaps even discrimination towards a creed of discrimination against those that discriminate against discrimination?)

Clearly, non-discrimination laws are discriminatory towards those that wish to discriminate against those that preach non-discrimination towards those that discriminate!

oie. hmm.

Let me simplify things a bit, and say that anyone that declares something along the lines of "you should be more tolerant!" is being a hypocritical stupidhead.

So.

Obviously the only thing to do is to be intolerant.

Especially towards those that say in all caps:
"Intolerance towards intolerance is not intolerance."
I am totally intolerant of those people.
I hope their nacho chips get smushed on the trip back from the grocery store.
And their ice cream melts.

Re: Here is a logical loop for funzies.

Someone should not be fired for their opinion; that's just common sense. I'm sick of this capitalistic bullshit society. He was expressing a philosophical point, not condoning/making racist remarks. His point makes sense and he gets fired by a bunch of idiots. I mean seriously, HOW do you misinterpret a statement about your own freedom/rights as some kind of social dramatic BULLSHIT.

Re: Here is a logical loop for funzies.

I like this, Pbhead. Thanks for trying to spark some intelligent conversation on the forums here, please keep it up :)

I do not believe that someone should be fired for having (or rather, stating) an opinion.
However, I do believe that companies should reserve the right to fire someone if they're not representing the company how it wants to be represented. This does not mean they should, but rather that they can.

This example is not alluding in any way to the article provided in the OP.

Imagine you're Phreak, from Riot. But then one day you just can't take your job any more, and you start talking about how much you hate Riot, or make some generally slanderous comments online on Twitter.
Because Phreak represents Riot Games, they should have the right to fire him because of what he has announced to the world.

If a company overreacts over something silly though, it shouldn't be illegal. It's just bad management, and it is very likely to show. If what a representative said was that bad, people will understand. If it's generally perceived as not bad and he's still fired, then obviously people will notice and it's even worse for the company's image to fire them like that.

Re: Here is a logical loop for funzies.

Rock Paper Sissors still sounds akward to me. I grew up with that saying. It's like how I find "San, Err, Yi" weird when people count down when taking photos... (3, 2, 1 in chinese, sounds something like that)

And Jan Ken Pon does sound a lot easier to say indeed.
Now back on-topic... Huh? I lost track of the convo
