Summary: A series of blunders and poorly-worded communications are harming institutions and companies (or institutions that outsource to companies and themselves behave like private companies); why are opponents of democracy being promoted to management positions?

THE THIRTEENTH part of the current series showed that the EPO‘s operations are being outsourced to Lukashenko apologists or closeted supporters. Maybe that’s understandable given the behaviour of Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos. They’re oppressive autocrats like Lukashenko and they routinely lie to “the people” (with a straight face, too).

“This isn’t going to end well and the public will sooner or later catch up with the blunders.”The video above is a personal interpretation of the situation in SaM and then the EPO, which is seemingly being ‘liquidated’ for some monetary gain. The people who run today’s EPO don’t care about the EPO’s mission or the EPC, which gave the EPO a right to exist. This isn’t going to end well and the public will sooner or later catch up with the blunders.

We shall soon publish a summary of the series.

    Windows has back doors; Estonia seems wise enough to move away from it, more so after Russian hostility



  2. In These Censorious Times...

    The World Wide Web has rapidly become a platform of censorship (not just in places like China and Russia) and we're extending to protocols that make censorship very difficult, sometimes infeasible

  11. In Africa, Android is More Than Three Times Bigger Than Microsoft Windows

    Now that Microsoft is starting to block Linux from booting on new laptops it’s important to remember that the “consumer” does not actually choose Windows; Microsoft is trying to forcibly impose Windows on unwanting computer users



  12. LinuxToday (or Linux Today) Shows Signs of Agony

    The Web site LinuxToday.com is pushing webspam instead of news picks; it also sells data about visitors (the typical “We value your privacy” lie), so it seems like “monetisation” tactics have taken precedence/priority over readers (or what’s left of them anyway; the webspam inevitably drives more of them away)

  15. [Meme] Criminals Have Feelings Too...

    We’ve learned today that speaking to colleagues about the EPO‘s corruption is regarded as a privacy problem by those who engage in this corruption



  16. [Meme] Dignity of Criminals

    Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos have turned the EPO into s**t; two men, one crêpe



  17. António Campinos Once Again Failing to Obey Court Orders, Making Up Ludicrous Excuses for Non-Compliance

    The absurdity of this situation is bare and completely naked for all to see, as once again the EPO refuses to obey very explicit, unequivocal court orders, which are nearly a decade overdue. Today's EPO seems to have been taken over by crime lords, or an embodiment of nepotism brought to us by the Frenchman Campinos and his enablers from Alicante.



  18. Recruitment Potential at the EPO Has Never Been Worse

    The tyrants who have taken the reins at the EPO want obedient robots, not human beings who are inclined to obey the law. Therefore, there seems to be an effort underway to drive out well-educated, highly-qualified, conscientious, experienced and charismatic workers who can stand in the way of profoundly unlawful strategies.

    Android (Linux-powered) is leaving Windows in the gutter; it’s hardly shocking that the criminals who run Microsoft try to prevent Linux from even booting on new laptops

    As Windows is spyware that surveys/surveils every single user of Windows, Microsoft knows best what’s going on and judging by this month’s numbers one can guess why they resort to overt antitrust violations with UEFI ‘killswitch’ while GNOME/IBM helps them (for money and favours)
