It's really sad that people think the way you do. Tragic in fact.
Sounds more like an emotional opinion but okay.

Hitler's moral compass is wrong. So was Steve Jobs.
Wrong on both counts.

What if we have a line of wonderful products, created by evil like Steve Jobs who detroyes countless people's livelihood, exploits millions of chinese slave labor, steals taxpayer's money, and we bury them forever, that would be true tragedy. I, for one, am happily enjoying Apple products.
We should boycott post-Apartheid diamonds. The lack of Apartheid is what destroyed SA.

Yeah, such as that absolutely atrocious post from the above poster. That's too over the top and downright unnecessary.
And I don't believe that we as humans should be criticizing one another unless we're beyond being criticized and that would make people perfect. Don't judge others unless your life is perfect.
Steve Jobs ran a company they way he saw fit. Was he a tyrant? From what I've read, yes. Was he near unbearable to work for? From what I read, yes. Does that give me justification to call him all sorts of names and put down his family? Hell no. I never worked with him and none of the people here saying such vicious things about him have either. There was no reason to call his wife names. His company obviously became successful based on how he ran it so people here need to get off their high horse and quit the name calling. MR doesn't allow us to criticize each other with name calling (and we interact with each other) so why should one criticize another human they don't even interact with?

To be honest, I'd do anything to have someone with Steve's stance on poaching leading my company...

SJ's anti-competition anti poaching behavior is nothing less than domestic terrorism.

Now imagine Apple investing in this area because they believe they can design a new chip that will rival the computing power and power consumption specs of anything in existence. They'd like to hire you. Should they be allowed to approach you? I'm betting that in this scenario, you would say 'yes, they should be allowed to' and possibly, you might even be interested in hearing what Apple has to say. And I think Apple SHOULD be allowed to approach you.

This is what Palm is contending (that they should be allowed to approach folks with the best talent regardless of their current employer). However, the agreement that Apple, Google, et al had in place would prevent Apple from approaching you.
I get the point... I've been living it for over 25 years working in the software industry. Poaching is bad. It's disruptive and all it does is hurt all the companies in the area and it's not good for the individuals too as it's disrtracting. If I worked at Google, and wanted to work at Apple, I could always just apply for the job... of course, assuming I'm not violating my employment contract that I agreed to when I took the job.

You're being sarcastic, right? Companies never make agreements that are illegal, unethical, or unfair to other parties?

The Bozo Bin can be a useful tool.
But sometimes you learn more from those you disagree with. But I agree it is more comforting to only listen to those with the same mindset as yours.

Personally, I rarely use the filters. I agree that reading divergent viewpoints is more enjoyable than living in an echo chamber.

But the OP was complaining that he did not want to see certain people's posts, hence my suggestion to him.
