"...As some of you may know, we received a bomb threat a few weeks ago--and this isn't the first, second, or even third instance of the sort that we've had to deal with. We've also had people show up at our house, we've received threatening phone calls and emails, had our comings and goings tracked, been doxxed, and had our personal information distributed. This isn't limited to our hosts: our guests, mods, staff, families, and sponsors have also been the targets of these threats and abuse.
The term "troll" gets thrown around a lot. We get it: it's the Internet, and trolls, snarkiness, and differing opinions come with the territory. But it seriously crosses a line when it becomes targeted harassment, cyberstalking, and there are threats of violence--especially when your children are in the crosshairs. "Trolling" you can ignore, "stalking" is a different matter.
We take all of this very seriously. Being a target is scary and emotionally trying in a way that I wouldn't wish on anyone--and even more so when your friends and family are put at risk. We ask that you please respect any safeguards we must put in place as a result..."

- Westfield InsuranceWebSphere/Linux/Unix Technology Lead, 2005 - 2011I lead an amazing team of Linux and WebSphere Tech's. We began automating our infrastructure when I started there. Within the 5 years I was there the team managed to drop build times from 4-5 days to 4-5 hours. So, yes DevOps works and will save your company time and money. We were so fast at building the environment that before I left the plan was to rebuild rather than restore the servers in a Disaster Recovery situation.
