Summary: We're learning or becoming informed of some more crimes of Sirius 'Open Source' (a company we left over 4 months ago); the video above explains that the company or its boosters (maybe shills) resort to intimidation tactics and threats (familiar tactics), having not just lost key staff (including the CEO) but also found itself unable to recruit

NOW that people are speaking out about what the company did to them even a decade ago I thought I'd mention a bunch of old stories about what the company did to staff, clients, and suppliers.

"Whether Sirius was sabotaged or simply sabotaged itself is something for "historians" to decide."The company may not last much longer (maybe weeks or months), pension providers have resorted to stalling tactics and lies (covering their own behinds), but we need to properly explain what happened, more so after Bill Gates had passed some money to the CEO under an NDA.

Whether Sirius was sabotaged or simply sabotaged itself is something for "historians" to decide. NDAs make its exceptionally hard to figure out what really happened.
