It's a sad, sad state of affairs when businesses will stoop to this level to avoid layoffs which will affect their unemployment insurance premiums.

That's probably not necessary. They have a small group of employees who snoop the public forums (Facebook in particular) for dirt on other employees.

It seems that stating something like that on a public forum where readers can look to your profile to see where you work constitutes Defamation Of Character against your employer. The nurse was given a suspension and told to refrain from any negative comments against her employer in any public forum, including, but not limited to, internet forums, public gatherings, or media outlets.

And thanks everyone for your kind words and warm hearts

Being the state of affairs of the healthcare debate as it is, did you try a media outlet? Everyone loves a good story of the big, evil, corporate healthcare monster trying to screw the little guy.

not that I'm saying you're little... I mean you might be, but that's cool, little people are people too...

okay I'll quit while I'm ahead...

OK, forget what I said about the kind words and warm hearts fuuck
Just kidding
Yes i've thought about it. It would definately burn any bridges with them, and knowing how they operate I could forsee a defamation lawsuit on the horizon - but it is one of 3 options i'm mulling over. Well, there are actually 4 options but my luck at the lottery hasn't been too hot lately.

Well, Defamation laws in the US (from what I know, which is limited) state that the ultimate defense is truth. I wouldn't worry about burning bridges with them, they've done a bloody good job of burning them for you. Frankly, this is one of those situations where I want to tell you to just do everything you can to get back at them, but I really can't because I'm not in your shoes.

Hey Paul,

In respect to your daughter, I will now refrain from buying any products from boots from now on.

I'm sure she will go on to better things

I hope this finds you all well...wherever you may be today

Jchas, I sincerely hope everything works out for the best, and the same naturally goes for mr Frindle's daughter. Greed really brings out the worst in people, and there are a lot of companies out there which are run by a whole bunch of very greedy people...



Btw, hope you guys don't mind me bringing my Friday night coffee to the beer party. Best wishes for a great weekend to everyone.

Hey Scott! Truth be told, and I feel a bit silly about this, I have yet to acquire a grinder. Being on parental leave left me very rich but in a non-monetary way, so to speak. But I'm heading right up the grinder trail this coming week, and will keep you updated on my adventures.

But they can't do anything about comments by people who aren't employees right? So what if a bunch of very kind and like-minded people who are committed to truth, justice, and the giving away; people who appreciate freedom at work and home; let's say a group of people from a forum about oh... I don't know... recording gear or something, took the time on their own Facebook pages to gently diss this megalomaniacal company with its own secret police. What would they do about that? I'm not suggesting verbal online vandalism or even defamation (I think you actually have to HAVE character for it to be defamed), just sharing the truth about this company with the people skills of Ebola Zaire.

I'm just sayin'...

I am with you on the virtual/real coffee. I quit drinking and smoking when I got sick. I didn't think it was that big of a sacrifice, seeing as I now get to have a virtual beer or two on fridays...

Kineticturtle, an old Boss chorus pedal is flying through the air, headed West for the Bay Area where it once lived a life of chorusy, non-freezing bliss. Enjoy!

Engine 7 and Big Country, sorry for further delay, but I'll have to send your gifts out after my wife and I return from our romantic getaway to the stony shores of Lake Superior!

Really not bad, but it must be "well managed", to not be "dangerous" for any "ex-employee", mmmh ? See what I mean ?

DUDE, YOU ROCK. A great package no doubt. Since I am not a guitarist, the strings will be given to my son. Originally, not realizing they were for accoustic, I was going to give them to my best friend. Seeing that they are accoustic strings, they will find a home on my sons accoustic, which are much needed. The DVD will absolutely be enjoyed, and the $100 for Zenpro will go toward the SafeSound P1 I have been dying to get.This thread absolutely rocks, as do the guys that particiapate!!
