condescending and smarmy. F*ck em.[/b]
So you can say whatever u want about your job/co-workers/employers,ONLINE, yet they dont have the right to respond/call u out/react, if 'they' read it?
If your blog was really as hard to find as you say it was, and the work-related writing was so obscured and buried within a multitude of posts, I would be much more concerned in discovering exactly WHO was studying your life so intently. I would bring this up to your employer as a matter of personal safety. If they refuse to tell you, try to work the hypocrisy angle: "They know who I am, but I can't know them?" etc.Of course, I'm sure you won't do this for fear of dragging it out/making a bad impression over a small matter. But I would. Seriously. Some dude in the IT department is probably building a shrine to you as we speak.
You never get in trouble for sharing too little on the internet, only too much.
ignasty is spot on. I couldn't handle the notion that my employers have me under surveillance, it demonstrates a complete lack of respect. It's not so much that they are protecting colleagues from online character assassination as totally violating your privacy.
Full disclosure: I am an employer myself, but it's never occurred to me to look at an employees Facebook or blog or whatever.
This makes no sense to me whatsoever. She wasn't 'under surveillance' unless they hacked into her account.
