As some of you know, I was asked by managers at my company last week to take down/alter a blog entry I had posted concerning the state of strike negotiations with one of the unions. I had included some commentary on how the head office workers were interpreting things. I think there was too much truth for some people thus the request to erase history.
At any rate, at the end of the week I had been told by another department that it had been wrong for the company to ask me to remove personal comments on a personal blog.
However, early this week I found out from another source that there were still people monitoring my 'site of interest', thus the decision to pack up, move and remove all traces of the company's name from all posts dating back to the beginning of this blog. I've had some wise advice and had some nightmares come back to haunt me again through all of this ordeal. Like, I realize this is public domain, but it's also personal commentary so if you don't like it, fuck off. I didn't cross over any business ethics lines in what I had posted. And now, if I still hear any crap from anyone at work with the blog at its current location, I'll know they are intentionally trying to get something on me which is a more serious problem.
This all might be quite a symbolic move as I'd like nothing better right now than to put this ordeal and the entire company where is stems from behind me.
