In a previous life when I was a cube worker, my company held annual reviews upon which an annual raise was determined. Problem was they were always late on those annual reviews. One year I decided to start noting by putting "Days Annual Review is Overdue" on my cube's whiteboard, knowning my boss and his boss had to walk by it every day. Around day 200, my boss told me they all found my sign irritating and felt it insulted them. Yup... they were f'ing around with my paycheck, but...
The terms “master” and “slave” have long been used in technology to refer to a relationship between devices. Google is working to phase it out. Among the “suggested alternatives” are, “primary/replica,” “master/replica,” “elder/follower” or, somewhat more creatively, “master/minion.”

OMG this guy is an idiot
US Pol / Conservatives and Deplatforming
