Hi,

(H1B visa sponsorship required).

I'm experienced Software Engineer with a demonstrated history of 
working in the security and investigations industry. Skilled in 
C, C++, D, C#, SQL, Object-Oriented Programming, Software 
Development and Electrical Engineering. Strong engineering 
professional with willingness to further education.

Actually I work as a full stack ASP.NET developer for SolarWinds

This is news to me, and I live in the US. Also, if the US is collapsing, that is very bad news for D, seeing as how I live about 45 minutes from Walter, and Andrei lives in the US as well. I think people often mistake the breathless bleating in the news for reality. In the end, I am confident that reality will prevail. It has such an ... uncompromising way about it. :) With that resolved, let us return to the topic at hand. To get an H1B you'll want to get a job with one of the majors. Microsoft, Google, Apple, Amazon. There are smaller companies, but the majors have a dedicated team of lawyers who can guide your H1B through the process. It is the consulting body-shops are bearing the brunt of the crackdown. Much to the rejoicing of the H1B's on my team. Second, getting a green card for an H1B is easily a 10 year wait. You'll be in for the long-haul. :) -- Adam Wilson IRC: LightBender import quiet.dlang.dev;

None of these companies are looking for employees without working visa in the US. Mostly, they have branch offices in EU, so if I apply for a job, they will hire me in one of the EU offices. But thanks for the advice, I'll apply for some job opportunities at these companies and try my best.

The reason for that is actually a quirk of the US visa regime. Look up the L1. It's less restrictive. But it requires you work for one year outside the country. -- Adam Wilson IRC: LightBender import quiet.dlang.dev;

Also, perhaps you could delegate the policing of off topic threads to someone else..?? We could all use your attention elsewhere: https://issues.dlang.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&component=dmd&product=D&query_format=advanced&resolution=---&short_desc=d&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr btw. I read somewhere that this forum software can't delete threads. That sounds pretty silly. Even sillier if it's true. You could ask someone to volunteer, to waste their time policing the threads, looking for off topic discussions, and then delete them, or maybe have some facility to mark them for automatic deletion with a period of time...or something.

The forum software is a frontend for a newsgroup server, which also backs a mailing list. Although it would be possible to add a feature to delete posts from the local cache the forum uses, it wouldn't be something that could be synced across the other interfaces. Editing is tricky to implement, too. And because we don't have moderators or require accounts, it's been longstanding policy here that we're on the honor system with our posts posts. In order to maintain a healthy environment and avoid toxic flamewars, politics and religion are discouraged as topics of discussion.

It's not true, despite what Mike said earlier. For example, there was clear commercial spam posted to the Announce newsgroup earlier this month, which I and others noted at the time, and that entire thread has been deleted from the forum but not from the mailing list archive: http://lists.puremagic.com/pipermail/digitalmars-d-announce/2017-November/046642.html Also, many posts in this forum thread were similarly deleted. Of course, emails sent out to the mailing list cannot be unsent, whereas I'm not sure what's done on the D newsgroup as I've never used it. It has been said that you shouldn't respond to such spam posts, but my guess is that's only to make it easier to remove the thread, by not having to hunt down all the replies or something. I agree that if Walter is the one moderating the forum, as appears to be the case, there's got to be some other way of doing it, as that cannot be the best use of his time.

Responding to spam encourages it. It's what the spammer wants. The same goes for abusive posts. If you still feel you must reply to it, do not quote any part of it.

I find that hard to believe, especially since spam threads like the one I linked are completely nuked from the forum.

Sure, that makes sense. I sometimes try to reason with the person, but not if the abuse continues.

 of it.
In the mailing list thread linked above, I only responded to tell codephantom that it was spam and that you prefer people not to respond. I figured that was okay since he already responded to it. btw, I sent you an email last week about some forum deletions that some moderator may have gone overboard with, haven't gotten a response yet.

I didn't say it's impossible to delete messages from the NNTP server. What I said was, "it wouldn't be something that could be synced across the other interfaces", and that absolutely is true. If you download a newsgroup message from the server before it's deleted, you've still got that message locally. The same holds for those using the mailing list interface.

Yes, I was only talking about your statements about there not being a moderator and implying forum posts couldn't be deleted, as should be clear from the rest of what I wrote.

People would still have it locally if they don't use the online forums.

It depends on the settings of the NNTP client too. Thunderbird can list a spam post but sometimes I get a message to the effect of "server said no such article" when I click on it. Even if the article is cached locally, the client can drop it. Ali

Because our forum here is better and faster than any of the various forum software we looked at. It's also customized to our particular preferences and needs.

This forum is for D, and supporting off-topic forums is not part of our purpose. I enjoy arguing about politics myself, but not here. I recommend using reddit for politics. For here, I appreciate everyone maintaining professional demeanor and keeping things reasonably about D.
