in reply to McCarthyism, Open Source & PM

Bleh. Especially the part where the company is keeping track of your online activity.
I'm still annoyed at one company that I had worked for. This company used a lot of open source, but since it was modified, they didn't release anything back. Rather than rant over what I went through, I can only offer you a bit of advice. Run like hell. If the company is steadfastly refusing the benefits of Open Source, and this makes you unhappy, it's not a good enviroment for you. Stress is bad. And if the company has identified you as an Open Source advocate, there will be people who will increase your stress.
