in reply to Would you work at a porn company?

I have done some small contracting work for one. My big question was "Do you do child, animal, or non-consensual porn?". While I never actually saw the actual media, it was important to me that nothing repugnant to me, personally, was being supported with my work.

Frankly, I have almost never understood the applications I work on. Heck, I don't even understand the applications I have designed from scratch! I'm a builder, not a user.

Here's another way to look at the topic - porn is serving multimedia in a rapid fashion. My first Perl job was doing exactly that, but for images of corn, tractors, and bees. What's the difference?

My last job was to automate submission and indexing of multimedia from various sources and to improve the response time for searches and delivery of said multimedia.

Porn? Corn? Can you tell the difference?

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
