    Microsoft orders probe of Bill Gates harassment allegations

    lol I had to laugh this is a non starter

    Microsoft has tapped an outside law firm to probe its handling of workplace sexual harassment, including allegations against its founder Bill Gates, the company revealed on Thursday.

    The tech giant said
    law firm Arent Fox will compile a report detailing the effectiveness of its internal policies on workplace sexual harassment and gender discrimination. The announcement followed mounting pressure from shareholders to address the situation.


    The report will include a summary of any investigations into top Microsoft executives, including its board’s 2019 investigation into claims against Gates. The billionaire was accused of engaging in an inappropriate relationship with a female Microsoft employee.


    “Our culture remains our number one priority and the entire Board appreciates the critical importance of a safe and inclusive environment for all Microsoft employees,” Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement.

    There is something a little Pee Wee Hermanish about him.

    Speaking as someone who grew up on MS-DOS all the way up to Windows 10, I have to say that this is rather surprising. At the same time, with everything else I'm hearing about the Elites, not that surprising. I'll admit that I'm someone who's trying to get away from using Windows. However, at the same time, it's one of the most solid operating systems in regard to sharing files over a network. Oh well.

    Well look on the Bright side, they could have called someone like Gloria Alred to "get to the bottom of it all".

    It would be interesting to see a real bulldog like Harmeet Dhillon tear through the company and see what emerges.

    Funny. People look at me crazy when I point out that when I first went to college the only Windows we had were the ones we looked out of.

    If he did anything illegal then the woman should call the cops. If not then the shareholders should %$%$ off. Its none of their business who Bill Gates %$%$s. What exactly is an "inappropriate relationship' with a female employee anyway? This whole #metoo nonsense has turned the world mad. 10% of people still find romantic partners in the workplace and this percentage used to be a lot higher. Its only natural that workplace romances are going to happen and often one of the lovers will be in a higher position than the other but this does not mean that anyone is being exploited. I dont like leftists like Gates or the Cuomo but I think that we on the right should avoid celebrating when people like these two become victims of the leftist #metoo movement. Sure it is poetic when the left eats their own but we must have standards that are consistent so that we are not seen to be opportunistic and unprincipled ghouls like our leftist enemies are. And not just for the optics but also so we can look at ourselves in a mirror.

    How exactly have the shareholders made this an issue anyway? I always hate that nonsense narrative. This is PR for the public not for shareholders. Its a dumb narrative anyway you know. Makes shareholders sound like guilty modern day slave owners...
