And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what we do not do as a company employee. The first commentor? Is an official LiveJournal/SixApart representative.

There's the words epic fail in there somewhere. (And possibly schadenfraude in the future.)

People get fired for less. When you are hired on a representative of the company and you use your journal making announcements on official communities, you represent the company. Using said official journal to make comments indicating, possibly in jest, that half or more of your users are pedophiles? Not on.

What do I mean by people getting fired for less? I've heard so many stories in my classes about people working for one beer company, going to the bar in their uniform, and drinking another company's beer. When you wear the uniform, you represent the company. LiveJournal is a bit different since it's an online community. But [livejournal.com profile] burr86 is an official representative, and should not be making such posts, even in jest. Basically this is fanning the flames.

(There are so many responses to him that I can't even get LJ to show the entire thread for the first comment.)

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge for pointing this post out.

ETA: The mod at [livejournal.com profile] efw deleted the post. For those curious what he said, click here.

ETA the 2nd (August 6): And there' are two online articles about this now:
LiveJournal arouses the ire of its users…again.
Livejournal Employee Publicly Mocks Fandom I didn't know that Firefox had a news thingy?

Sorry if anybody is sick of this. I'm sick of it too but I keep going back just to see if something has been done on LJ/SA's side. Monday's the start of the business week. We'll see I guess.

Dear customer,

Saying "Well, at least I returned it," for your two month late rentals doesn't count if we've already replaced all but one of them.

No love,

Okay, this rocks for a owning the customer thing:


Totally fun to read.
