Well the article implies the author learned all this stuff through experience. It isn't titled "Things I read about in reports about the IT industry"
Also I said I have not heard of ONE case of this happening outside of "studies". Even one.
So again: if it didn't happen to you personally, it doesn't happen to anyone. Makes sense.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
