Here's the latest from "sfdrew", a castrated collaborator who hangs out on Dice:

"One day a programmer wakes up and goes into work only to find out he is being let go. A couple of weeks later he finds out he is being replaced by a guest worker along with many others who were let go at the same time. He scrubs all the local resources but work is hard to find in the immediate area because so many other programmers are also freshly out of work there. A few weeks have gone by but he is still optimistic about finding another job.

Six months later the unemployment, personal savings, and borrowed money are starting to run out. His marriage is suffering and he is starting to seriously consider moving to find work. He gets on the internet and starts looking for long distance jobs on Dice. He doesn't have anything else to do all day so he pops into the message boards and creates an account. He posts an innocent enough topic asking for advice. I don't think I need to fill in the blanks on what kind of replies he is going to get. The man becomes angry and wants to learn more.

A couple more months have passed and he still hasn't found work. he spends most of his time trolling message boards like the ones on Dice and is an active member and supporter of groups like the programmers guild. All he does all day is read the same rhetoric over and over again. He is convinced that he is the victim of a conspiracy by the government and the large mufti-national corporations. At this point he despises any employer who might consider giving him a job if they hire guest workers or do any kind of outsourcing, which is practically all of them. Instead of trying to get his life back on track he just focuses more and more on the rally cries of the cause.

He becomes increasing active in the fight and join picket protests, goes to Washington, and harasses every member of congress every chance he gets with phone calls and letters. The more time that goes by without anything changing the more angry he becomes. His entire life is consumed by negativity and he is convinced that if the evil corporations would be indited and the all the filthy Indians would leave then things would go back to the way they used to be. He has lost his family, his job, his dignity and the only thing he has left to hold onto is his hatred for guest workers, off-shoring, the government, and large corporations.

A senator announces a bill to double the amount of guest workers and groups like the programmers guild send out a call to action. When the usual letters and phone calls are ignored for the hundredth time he finally snaps and sends a bomb in the mail to the senators office with a note attached. He goes down to his old employer and shoots every Indian in the office and then himself leaving a suicide note.

If you don't think something like that could happen then you need to pull your head out of your *** because that is exactly the type of story that unfolds in all those tragic cases."

Geez, dude, you say it like it's a bad thing...
