Glassdoor data privacy shenanigans
From comments:
"Gotta make it look like Fishbowl has tons of accounts? Just make everyone with a glassdoor account also a fishbowl user. Nevermind that one is designed for anonymity and the other isn't, let's just make glassdoor hostile to anonymity. What could possibly go wrong?"
"The best way to protect sensitive information is to not collect it in the first place."

If you had any “privacy principles” to speak of, what would Adobe, Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Bloomberg, Google, Huawei, IAB, IBM, Meta, Microsoft, Oracle, Samsung, Bilibili, SoftBank, Tencent, Yahoo!, Zoom, etc., be doing on your members list?
