The purge has already started, 4 people on my team have been terminated since Tuesday for non-performance reasons with no notice. ANYONE who has said a single disparaging comment will be out of Google by the end of year, over 650 reports pending in HR.

      If (report.accused.gender === Gender.male)
      Throw new exception (“DID YOU JUST ASSUME AN EMPLOYEES GENDER?!”);

      Google code standard forbids exception. You fail.

      I already got in trouble for that one. “We aren’t guys.”

      Leave him alone he’s out playing with google glass v20 somewhere.

      I think the problem is he's playing with the hot PM too.

    An allegation is enough. No proof required if you are a female.

      When only 6 of every 1000 rapists end up in prison, allegations are hardly enough.

      Not talking about prison/prosecution, just getting fired, shamed publicly, etc.

      OP
      No way to do that

    So OP, does this mean there will be a lot of openings soon? If the standard is “don’t be rude or disparaging to fellow employees, nor make unwanted comments/advances” that just sounds like basic workplace commonsense to me. I’m kind of amazed that many gross people are at Google? I guess that inherently happens with such scale?

    I’m even more likely to take an offer and join up now knowing those folks have just been proactively removed.

    I just hope the reporting system is anonymous so chickenshits can feel safe whilst oppressing the lower classes/races/genders/... MGGA.
