Late Stage Capitalism 

How can a company run by humanoids actually be this bad? How do these ads pass any levels of approval?

Late Stage Capitalism 

@gargron what

is it "having a stable salary is boring, try being afraid for your survival by taking as many as possible of the worst jobs related to a computer and having to fight for it against millions of unemployed bored people"

what

Late Stage Capitalism 

@CobaltVelvet [seymour voice] yes

Late Stage Capitalism 

@gargron i think their marketing is made by users :thaenkin:

Late Stage Capitalism 

@CobaltVelvet @gargron are you implying that their marketing is sarcastic and designed to highlight the horrors of capitalism? O.o

Late Stage Capitalism 

@Gargron Wow, Inspirobot killed it today

Late Stage Capitalism 

@Gargron

My sense of things is that Late Capital is just going in for the kill now

Late Stage Capitalism 

@Gargron
Just like deliberately crap spam e-mails It's a really effective way to filter out anyone who would feel like they are being exploited on that terrible service. Works well from that angle!

@Gargron NYC subway? I'm not there now, but it looks like the inside of a 1, 6, 7, or S

And yeah the ads can get very late-stage capitalism-y at times

Late Stage Capitalism 

@Gargron Wow, I guess it's trying to say something like "Be daring, take risks" but it says it in the worst way imaginable.

I saw this tweet earlier today and it conveys rather the same feeling to me. twitter.com/yiffpolice/status/ (sfw thread)

Late Stage Capitalism (added swearing) 

@Gargron urgh, fuck fiverr.

I made so much stuff on the side when I had a safe reliable paycheck, and it helped 'cos it meant I could afford printing and going to conventions too. so fiverr can shove it up their butt.

@Gargron Is this an elaborate Watership Down reference? Is there a rival company called Cowslipp?

Late Stage Capitalism 

@Gargron Reminds me I need to rewrite and relaunch my Fiverr page. 8/day and I could quit this job and be free of current management...

Late Stage Capitalism 

@Gargron
you are a compassionate human
open to life in its many manifestation
maybe even understanding your own smallness

these fuckers just want money
as much as they can fleece
from a variety of millenial sheep
(in this instance)

@Gargron Everybody that approved it is so burned out, they don't think anything is wrong with it.

@Gargron This doesn't even make sense. Either crushing my soul is being set up as the positive, which implies that working as a contractor is in any way safe or reliable and that they're targeting some really fucking weird meta-self-depreciation fetishists who _want_ their soul crushed, or it's sarcasm, in which case they're selling themselves as unsafe and unreliable in comparison to their alternatives.
