You Might Have Noticed...

...that I took down yesterday's post about all the exciting office gossip I learned by forcing alcohol -- as if a gun -- into the throats of my loose lipped co-workers.

Well, as it turns out, Chosen, sent me this link as a warning:

"People have gotten fired for posting bad stuff about their boss and co-workers. Seriously. I'd really watch what you say when it comes to bad-mouthing them on the site. It's one thing to rant against them, but to call them drug users and sluts...that could be grounds for libel/slander (whichever the "print" one is). However, It was really funny...hence the full Chosen read! :)"

That having been said, I'm going to put it back up as soon as I add a couple posts to the mix, so stay posted and scroll down in a day or two...

I could have told you that, but I thought it was common knowledge. Thank you Chosen for ruining it for the rest of us -- imagine the greats posts we'd be reading when Gigi went to court, then jail.

Yeah, clearly it's common knowledge, but as I initially told Chosen (before ultimately heeding his warning):

"Yeah, I thought about that, but I liked it so I posted it."

Chosen is wise
Chosen is great
Chosen is...i don't know...something bombastically exuberant.

so sayeth Chosen.

Chosen has a very good point, Gigi. A poster that I read daily in the U.K. just stripped down her entire site because her FORMER employer found it and was hell-bent on reading the entire thing. The also brought up a potential lawsuit.

(by the way, Chosen, it's libel--and much easier to prove in court, since it's in black and white (or whatever color Gigi uses)).

Hmm...interesting. Did these people use their real names and/or mention the name of their companies?

I don't think anyone could sue me since I don't reveal either one of those facts...

I could be wrong though.

And you're just providing hearsay.
