Hi all,

TL;DR: Good link. IWFM.

It's a whole lot of yes when I read that link. Well, I gloss over it all holier-than-thou and feel like I don't need to be told, then notice that and go back and read it anyway. Thanks for posting it Ben.

I'm not sure I could disagree more. Of course, it depends on many things, including your definition of "work". Also the kind of workplace you are in, strive to be in, and strive to create.

Of *course* there are people in your not-so-good categories, but they don't have to define you or your workplace. I have thin skin and tread carefully around such people, but I still try to work with them.

It works for me because I get to go home each week knowing that I have respected users, colleagues etc and if it has gone badly or well, I know it's not because I've been rude or disrespectful.
