As for parodying iJobs then parody away, some of them are quite funny.. others seem to involve putting "i" in front of a puerile word. Which is not particularly clever or funny.
Who is this certain person who threatens to hit people? do you mean Screwd? I wish (you) people had the bottle to make claims like men.... I don't think he'd really really hit a person? he's got laminate flooring. OTOH some folk are ignorant of apples and do repeat ad-infinarti the same old urban myths and stereotype anybody using their goods as a slavish latte lizard with some vaguely "media job" possibly involving black polo-necks and homosexuality. This fast becomes frustrating, silly, annoying, all of the above.
"a certain somebody"
And yes I have made some poor iJokes, bite me.
I posted a rant 1. because I was angry and 2. to have the thread removed.
I have had to ask for quite a few threads to be removed because some people think it's a great idea to keep linking this alias to my employer. This is supposed to be an anonymous forum. So for the record: this site crops up high on Google, ergo it's easy to find. If I am identified by my employer, bringing the company into disrepute, I will get sacked.
I can't keep asking kindly for threads to be removed so in the longer term, I will simply have to stop posting here.
That's not a challenge incidentally but having mentioned it, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if I get "outed" by some dimwit - deliberately. Having made a LOT of very good friends on here, that would be a shame but fuck it, I LOVE my job more.
...and yes, some of the arguments have been hilarious so you can imagine how frustrating it is not to be able to "go off on one" any more.
So don't post stuff that could get you fired on the Apple threads then.
I rarely post in these threads anymore, shame because it's half my life now.
It's the OTHER half that is disreputable.
And it's not just specific manufacturers threads. For some reason, my employment status keeps popping up wherever I post. People seem to think it's "funny" I have to kill my own threads now on a regular basis.
That's a whole bunch of no fun.
Yeah ok. Is that better? Or would you rather maintain the pretence of anonymity, even if many of us do know a thing or two about each other? I mean, this isn't exactly VisorDown now is it?
Where's a shit stirring emoticon when you need it...
