Re: The Bad News Thread

lol this needs to be named the "Pick a fight" thread. I remember those rooms on AOL chat where you'd just go in and find someone to fight with. That used to be the "Debating with the Enemy" threads but this one is making a run at it.

Yo, I was not the one that took the photos. Those gems are compliments of the co-workers. I'm sure he'll snap the photos for a price. :P

This is an interesting segue, IMO.

And it's nice to hear JoeRedskin, Mattyk, SS, or someone else who actually has RL experience on the subject talk about stuff.

at least my keyboard would make the clicking typing sound and it would sound like im busy.

We need pics
Edit: guess this was already requested. I hate to see the bad news thread getting hilarious. That in itself is bad news though because it is thread fail so ok.

Re: The Bad News Thread

back to the lesson in warpath psychology, i think we can see that bad news brings confrontation then comedy followed by logical analysis. Good news gets a round of hearty good cheers. No wonder bad news sells. More clicks here.

Again, even with the picture, not likely to result in anything, BUT, if they have the right kind of crazy, have money to burn, and just want to make your life sh** for a bit, well, the pictures let them do that - even if you ultimately prevail.

When it comes to posting the pictures, if it were me, I wouldn't do it and I would recommend to any client of mine not to do so. I get where you coming from, really, I do (Just look at some of my posts in the Gear Grinding thread). I just think you may have let your frustrations get the better of your judgment.

I think I simply don't give a fuck at this stage so me and my co-workers turn it into humor at this point. We know nothing is going to change as long as the primary enabler stays around. Besides, knowing the stuff I have over the people above me gives me quite a bit of leverage to not give a fuck and probably why I posted them to begin with. If I felt I had anything really to lose, I probably wouldn't have posted it. The guy in question doesn't have money, and he knows the stuff I've said is right and can be proven. When it comes down to it, you better know your opponents hand before you go all in and turn your cards up. Overall, the advice is sound and most people would do well to take heed to it. Thank you for the breakdown and the advice JR. A beer has been earned my good man. That's two I owe you now.

Wow its scary how much the bad news thread resembles the gameday threads. Confrontation - comedy - logical analysis.

Hope there arent too many casualties. I read "multiple" deaths but that is a pretty broad statement.
