I had a talk with an insider from Dilbertland yesterday that confirmed my decision to leave was the right one. I never had any doubt, but this just seemed to reinforce it.
For the past 4 years or so, this effort has meant to be pointed, edgy, and yes, mean-spirited in order to showcase things I think are wrong. That's the beauty of this whole exercise. If you don't like the content, quit reading. Don't like my angle of thought? Go align yourself with other minded people. I don't care. I have, however, never used actual names of people I am talking about. Sure, our 2 faithful readers know the subjects I am describing. Dicky the Peap gets roasted on an almost daily basis and yet he knows, HE KNOWS, I have never revealed his legal name. Which brings me to my topic of today: apparently I hit a tender (very tender) chord when introducing CrazY to this forum. While still affiliated with us, my able bodied assistant Giacommo noted the similarities between our organization's staff and CrazY's personality. I wrote about it and politely declined to include him as I thought I had my hands full with the idiots I am surrounded by in the first place. I needed no more. CrazY reportedly recognized himself and my slide to banish-land started.
Looking back, I wouldn't have changed a thing. Some people are simply not going to change. It's not my job to change them. It's not my job to report them. My job (which I have chosen) is to simply write about, describe, and mock them in an anonymous fashion while at the same time driving home my point. I do it anonymously not because I am afraid to confront them; rather, to protect their honor. After all, how would you like to be described as CrazY?
