Wake up folks. It's flat out, time to wake up. The blogsphere, that wonderful world we share, is under attack. Again.
This time they are gunnin' for my buddy Bloodspite. And it's scary. Damned scary.
Here's whats going on. Back in November he put up a post about a "job opportunity" that he investigated. It was one in which you had to make an "investment" to participate. I've been to these things. And IN MY OPINION (statement made to keep me from being sued too) one should not pay to work. It's supposed to be the other way around. Hell - I don't even pay recruiters. Why in the hell would I pay someone for the opportunity to work for them and make them money?!?! Yeah, not gonna happen.
Anyway - he put the post up sayin' Don't Do It. Now - that company has contacted him and threatened to sue if he doesn't remove the post.
He had no choice. He took the post down.
Now - if he had written that same post as a Letter to the Editor nothing would have come of it. Instead it was written on a blog - that is privately owned - so they feel they can manipulate the situation.
Not good. Not good at all. I wish I had the money that I could give them to fight this. But, alas, we are just regular folks and don't have the time or the bankroll to hold out. But there are things, little things we can do. Laughing Wolf lists them out (and does a great job of saying what I'm thinking!)
We need to stand together. I can promise you - I will continue to post my opinions, thoughts and ideas here in Tammi's World. I will NOT be censured. Not by anyone.
What about you?Posted by Tammi at January 25, 2006 06:39 AM
