1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Im kinda surprised this hasnt caught on at Reddit or somewhere, ending in an epic shaming of the sender. Internet fail.

    A company like BMW isnt going to take kindly to having their name associated with that kind of asshole behavior.

    BMW definitely does not want to be associated with assholes!

    I sent a similar email to my manager on my last day at my old job (except I also CC'd the entire department). I was working in industry I vowed never to go near ever again and it was directed to the most incompetent manager I had ever encountered. Repercussions? I was blacklisted by the recruitment agency who recruited me. Do I regret sending the email? Not for a second - it was one of the most liberating things I've ever done.

    ... so "when you started last summer"

    *glances at ripples in his glass of water*

    Oh no! It's Thesaurus Rex!

    This is why I have the Plain Speech thread. Stuff like this make people look like dumbasses.

    god damn i tried to read that but the writing was impenetrable. I got a headache trying to keep all the unnecessary clauses and meanderings straight. Does he think this makes him look intelligent?

    Not witty. I've met Steve Jobs. Steve would sort of rub his stomach and say "we all need summer jobs"

    I like his style and I support the general thrust of the email, but the writing is just terrible.

    exactly,
    NEVER burn a bridge. No matter how tempted.


    I adhere to this. It's one thing to be all witty and sarcastic on the fora and even in face-to-face communication, but when the mentioned witticism might impact my future income (however improbable that might be) it's a risk I'm really not willing to take.

    Rule #1: Don't email this kind of shit.

    Big companies have fired established associates for less.
