Dear LinkedIn and Github

Microsoft dir troll

We bought you. You know you belong to Microsoft which means there are things we need to do for integration, so when I approach you to onboard you to things per our leadership, don’t be a dick about it.

You can treat me like trash, but don’t forget your place. You need to check your attitudes and snap to at Microsoft. You’re a conquered nation, surrender.

Vent - irritated at the 12 year olds who work at these companies and think they can still be a rogue entities. Grow up! I can’t wait until Satya hacks you guys up and lays off 75% of you idiots.

    It was not like either LinkedIn or GitHub was doing even less than great as individual companies and Microsoft saved us. Don't hate you can always apply like everyone else.

      Yes they were both losing money, let say Github Google was also planing to acquire it. But msft secured deal by overpaying.

      That’s not how anything works. It’s normal for companies in growth stages to be “losing money”. That doesn’t in any way mean they were desperate. Not by any stretch.

      they weren’t in growth mode. they were both heading flat out toward collapse. why be an apologist? great ideas both. inadequate monetization.

    You sound like a Patriots fan acting like you had something to do with winning the Super Bowl. You didn't buy GitHub, you just work here, probably delivering some stellar impact adding a new menu item to Visual Studio.

    Were you on the MSFT CorpDev team that pulled the trigger on these deals? Or do you work on the Internet Explorer team where no one gives a F about you? These hoes that talk like they were the ones that bought LI and GH are like kids when they say “WE have a Ferrari at our house.” Nah player, your dad has a Ferrari and your dad has a house, you just have front row seats but you’ll never see action on the court.

    It takes time to integrate into Microsoft, sounds ridiculous but I took around 4-5 years to integrate to Microsoft culture, to figure out how stuff works over here, don't expect any less from people who have, like me worked on open source and non Microsoft technology and culture for years...I had to slow down a lot of some of my expectations, and raise others to align with the culture here...as always patience and inclusiveness with time is the key here, I think, no easy fixes :-)

    So many “we bought you”, “we paid...”, “we...”, who are you exactly? How many shares do you own?

      We as in Microsoft. You need to onboard to a few things. We can’t be accountable for you as a company if we don’t know everything about you. But kids over there are all closed off. We’ll fix that.

      Could that sort of arrogant we-own-you-now attitude have anything to do with how closed off the kids seem?

    LinkedIn is not Facebook and can never be.

    Microsoft is not Google and can never be.

    But together LinkedIn and Microsoft can do things which they can't do individually.

    Microsoft is certainly better than Salesforce.

    Don't consider yourself superior or inferior. Both of you have your own strengths.

    Azure certainly makes more money and can grow faster.

    Moving to Azure is not a downgrade. Lot of Fortune 500s are there.

    Your tantrum here and agro attitude to “takeover” is exactly what folks who’ve been acquired are defensive about so I’m not surprised you’re getting that reaction from people. If you’re gonna act like a mad tyrant then of course you’re not going to be well received.

    Less of a troll and more of a sore.
    You should be fired from your position. (Dir troll)
    And what did you expect when 40 year olds trie to collaborate with 12 year olds?
    Hacking is more than welcome. Not like we are in Redmond or Microsoft. Lot of companies trying to hire us in the bay area.

    OP, I will put a picture of an ass as your profile photo. I will expose your phone number and put a message by it saying 'for a free BJ call me'. I will change your previous employment to 'San Quenton masseur'. I will add El Chapo to people you follow and Photoshop a picture of you with him kissing. And I will deny you access to your profile until you say 'LinkedIn rocks'.

    What do you think of me now? LinkedIn chocked up 29% growth this quarter. Good enough for you?

    Even Lynda team feels the same about LinkedIn I guess.

    Linkedin growth has been stalled already. Groups are useless and Premium is too hard to afford. They can't sell ads like Facebook and can't reach audience like Twitter.

    They need Donald Trump on LinkedIn.

    With Microsoft they have a chance to grow.

    There are harsh realities for Microsoft as well. They have scewed up Skype and Nokia acquisitions and LinkedIn could not be another one.

    Sincerely hope that Microsoft dudes stop behaving like Googlers and Linkedin hunks stop behaving like Facebook'ians. Remember that we are in same boat.

    I’ve seen the plans to hack up Github. LinkedIn is fine for now. But soon enough it’ll start. First, it’ll be “put everything into Azure” then more links in the chain will be made. And before you know it, pink slips from HR.

    It’s going to be an interesting year. Glad other companies want you guys, you’ll be a little less in high demand when supply increases drastically.
