Since many of you know I can produce a frothing-at-the-mouth rant as well as the next person, you may (or may not) be surprised that I did a bit of “housekeeping” on my site and took out a few of my frothier posts.
Why, you ask? Well, a couple reasons. First, I am now a “government employee” (and no, I will not tell you what branch or where. Muahahah). Second, I have now reached the minimal level of Google fame that has managed to link my so-carefully-chosen Internet pseudonym with my acutal name. (Fuck you, Twitter).
I’m not “Google safe” anymore. I like my job. You do the math. I’ve still left some frothy posts, but I took out the “really” bad ones.
Yeah, I know. I don’t believe in censorship, either, but I DO believe my employer has a right to decide if he wants to deal with my shit or not. So, there you go. Hopefully I made all of us happy. Also, to that end, I DO NOT friend coworkers ANYWHERE, and I block them if they follow me on Twitter (Facebook requires me to friend them, which I don’t). Still, the Internet is forever, and you never know what random cached file is going to make the six o’clock news.
Welcome to the 21st Century. I’ll still try to be a cynical sarcastic bitch, but I may have to start using my big words to do it. Enjoy.
