On all that fuckery (August 26, 2020)
From July 14 to August 17, 2020 (at time of publish), I experienced targeted harassment on GitHub—the company I’m employed at—via coordination happening on several “technology” 4chan threads about me. I wanted to share this story publicly to reiterate the bullshit marginalized folks in tech have to go through in order to be successful, visible, and just exist .
So as the dude in the screenshot says, I have plenty of material to write a post on all that fuckery .
And what still really creeps me out is that these people felt so emboldened to troll an EMPLOYEE using their actual GitHub accounts with legitimate work and contributions. These harassers are everyday software engineers.
I’m not famous and I don’t have a very large platform, so why me?
This is raging and revolting …
open source is already hard enough on itself, nobody should go through that kind of bullshit
