Former Google engineer James Damore on Tuesday shared a post from an anonymous Redditor claiming to be a "Google insider" who laid out in detail how the company allegedly scrambled to take him down after learning about his diversity manifesto.
The story seems a bit too good to be true, but Damore said it seemed credible because the post contained "knowledge that only a Googler would know" -- including his never-before-revealed involvement in Google's censored Chinese search engine dubbed "Dragonfly."
"Whoah, this would explain a lot," wrote in the comments at Reddit. "I can't verify its authenticity, but the OP is correct that I was one of about 100 employees that knew about Dragonfly. I also did report several legal issues in Search that they probably haven't fixed. My phone and computer were also extremely slow after the document went viral. Other parts of the post include knowledge that only a Googler would know."
Here's the full story as shared by "TiredOfLying4Google," title, "I helped Google screw over James Damore":
I was involved in the internal decisions involving James Damore's memo, and it's terrible what we did to him.Damore responded:
Though no one could find him saying publicly his devices were slowed, he did tell Joe Rogan "there were some weird things happening to my phone [...] it started rebooting after this whole controversy."
"This had never happened before, and it hasn't happened since," Damore said. "All these random apps started updating."
At this point, this is still entirely unconfirmed, sounds too good to be true and could certainly be a hoax.
Nonetheless, it's very interesting that Damore believes it could be credible. Google is quite possibly the most powerful company in the world and there's no question they're using their power to do very bad things.
