answer is yes, then not doing it will hurt your career.  One thing
that makes not using it hurt your career even more than it would by
merely failing-to-help is, if everyone else does it, then it becomes

If this happens, and I relent, comply, join, then NOW I've not only
been ramrodded into using the fucking thing over my supposed ``opt
out'' objection, but I'm not allowed to complain about it because now
I'm a ``hypocrite.''

No, fuck that whole idealogy.  Fuck off and go straight to hell with
