Just saw toot that referred to something I have some work-related expertise on. And... Just not going to add to the conversation, much as I would like to.

@fuzzface TFW you could walk in and regulate, but you realize it's better for your mental health to just let them be wrong.

@Miredly I'm avoiding saying anything that could impact me professionally. 😛

@xorowl Among other things... Say I worked at a Bank, and honestly answered a question about banking. On the surface, no harm done. However nowadays, context can get pulled in a lot of different directions and mislabeled.

A more fun example... Have you even been at a party and met someone who upon learning you were in the IT business started asking for troubleshooting help? Sometimes playing dumb is safer for your sanity.
