And another one bites the dust

Related to an earlier post, and also to a few posts over at ScotMcGerik's blog (this one and this one specifically), is the following chronicle of yet another workplace/blog conflict. Link is to the main blog page - archive links seem to not be working, but check out the Feb. 20 entry from Invisible Shoebox:

"Paperback Writer is gone, but, we hope, only temporarily. Miss JenJen turned up at work on Monday morning to find the CEO waiting for her. Someone had come across her blog, in which she discusses her workplace - infact, her hatred of her workplace - and had sent the URL out in an all staff email. The CEO told Miss JenJen that she was fired and then she was escorted from the building. Luckily, she had already resigned and really, it was probably this decision that lead her to writing as freely about her collegues as she did. But Ii's a horrifying prospect. Fired because of your blog...

Paperback Writer II coming soon, I hear."
