    I always felt that an appropriate response would be to say that, if I'm supposed to be a public-relations arm of the company 24/7, then my pay and benefits should reflect that.

    I wonder if we're going to have rules spelled out about this sort of thing. Maybe you can say certain things in certain ways, but not with profanity-- so it would be OK to say "My boss is a turkey" but you couldn't say "my boss is a fascist shitdick" for example.

    Or maybe you could complain about conditions you endure in general, but aren't allowed to call out managers or co-workers by name-- so you could say "what crappy day at work, that whole place is run dysfunctionally" without naming names.

    Business are still trying to adjust to the "human" side of the internet. I suspect we'll see more rules and regs formulated about this sort of thing as time goes by.
