A person's behavior in any circumstance reflects on their professionalism
and integrity. Given that your business appears to involve the vintage
computer collecting hobby, that should be even more of a cause for
concern than if you were making such comments in e.g. a sports bar.
To put it very bluntly, even most animals know better than to defecate
where they eat.

I notice that you didn't bother to explain how personal attacks provide
any support for your position, nor to offer any logical arguments
refuting mine. There would appear to be no point to wasting further
bandwidth with more replies in this very off-topic thread until and
unless you do.
