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.

    Picture of a few of our VP's and Presidents from an internal news site.

    Maybe they're house-broke and can only afford clothes from Big and Tall? Or didn't read that the pants may need to be hemmed?

    Yet, somehow, they're senior managers and you're just a lowly pee-on, overcompensating on the internet...get real.

    Who said I was a lowly pee-on?

    You know me or something? :)

    Posting pictures of senior management of your company on an internet forum and making fun of what they are wearing is probably not a good career move.

    Pretty sure I'll be alright. I don't think they're on here (hah). Or anyone else.

    Sure VinnyMac, I'm a peeon and an internet ninja, just like you (from the nature of your posts) :)

    Proof of a point I've made many times - clothing has no correlation to success. Zero. All it does is make you a well-dressed man (i.e., part of the "well-dressed club"). David Boies, one of the greatest litigators in the world, wears Land's End suits - an upgrade from the Sears suits he wore until quite recently. He wears hikey-shoes from Merrell. But he owns 8,000 bottles of wine:

    The guys above look like guys who don't want to dress fancy and don't desire to dress fancy. They care about work and probably have nice homes and brokerage accounts and that's how they want it.

    I've got no reason to not believe that now. Good points.

    They may have money, but it doesn't mean they have class. And they definitely don't have style.

    Since when does dressing sloppily mean one lacks class? Class is not defined by how well you dress.

    As executive management, I would be pretty annoyed if one of my employees posted a picture of other employees from our intranet to a public site and proceeded to make fun of them (regardless of where they sit organizationally). I would go out of my way to identify the employee responsible and implement disciplinary action. It's one thing to poke fun at anonymous folks on the internet (or those who participate in SF), but this is really poor workplace behavior.

    Can't speak for the guys in the photo, but my Father dresses like he guy on the far right and exudes class.

    I couldn't dredge up enough care to fill a thimble about how horribly those guys are dressed (and they are) or the OP's choice in posting said photo-- but when did this become the "speak with respect of poorly dressed individuals" forum?

    We all walk by hundreds of poorly dressed men every day. Who gives a flip for your four? It's weird that you're posting this, and obviously done more for your satisfaction than ours, which is rather pathetic or sick.

    Ehhhh....he's probably letting off some steam, which is neither pathetic nor sick...though more than a little unwise. It would have been smarter if he at least blacked out their faces.

    Looks like the thread was a mistake. Its a very small company so I wasn't worrier about getting traced back, although could have still been wise.

    I see people talking about inappropriate and ill-fitted suits quite a bit ans thought someone would get a kick out of the measurements. But nowhere did I say they had no class, or less class than me.

    hey I'll play. They all look like schlumps. I don't give a shit that you posted the picture either. Good for you. Shame them into dressing like freaking professionals for once.
