Well due to fairly fortunate timing of a RAID meltdown RPoL (and thus this little page of ramblings) is now hosted in America.

Some of you may be aware that times have been rather interesting for me of late, least of all being Internet stalked.  Oh yes, and what jolly fun it is.

Unless you’ve had your head in a bucket you’ll also know that I recently got my arse fired, without any warning I might add.  Now one wouldn’t be surprised to find that I was a little put out by this and have been trying to pursue what I believe is fair compensation.

Besides random crap I like to post stuff here that keeps friends (whether they be real or virtual) informed of what’s going on.  Rather than email all about my latest trials and tribulations I opted to post it on my blog spot, or whatever a thing such as this is called these days.

Considering the server migration had not yet taken place I thought I’d best post such an entry in my LiveJournal.  I didn’t think much of it as I only know of about 6 or so people that know of it, let alone read this thing or my LiveJournal… but considering I was posting it on the Internet I decided I best encrypt the names of those involved.  I didn’t think I was breaking any laws by posting it, I still don’t, but I felt “better safe than sorry” and all that.

It was a pretty straight forward post, basically a copy any paste of what I entered into my unfair dismissal application.  No huge rant and rave, no “what a bunch of…” or anything, just the facts.  I think the worst thing I typed was “not so innocent”.

Now it was on the Internet, for sure, but considering I don’t publish it anywhere, don’t announce or advertise it, and have only told a few people about it, I thought it was pretty private.

Alas it wasn’t private from the artist formally known as dollsteak.

Aha, he spotted it, and wouldn’t it serve me right if he then emailed as many people at my ex-work as he could think of about my entry warning them of litigation.  Like I’d post it on the Internet before I served the papers on them.

Maybe he’s hoping that he’ll teach me a lesson for not publicly apologising to him (after all, the second to last correspondence I had from him utilised the phrase;

“All I want is my reputation back… and I will have it one way or another.  Best to do it your way and take credit for being the better man than let me do it in some underhanded method.”

Maybe he though that jeopardising 6 months salary was the best way of getting his reputation back.

After all, his last message to me did say “We are mature adults.”, and that’s certainly a mature thing to do.

But it doesn’t stop there, of course not.

So I removed my post.  Fine; it’s not private, I’ll remove it.  Of course, I had to give him credit, so I publicly did.

Ooops, bad move, somebody made a complaint to LiveJournal.  Heh.

Dear LiveJournal user jaseisonlj,

It has been brought to our attention that you have posted a full name in your post located at http://www.livejournal.com/users/jaseisonlj/557.html. Please remove the name T….. J D… on or before 12:01am, July 6, 2004, or face further action taken against your account. Thank you for your cooperation.

LiveJournal Abuse Team

I couldn’t and still can’t see anywhere in the LJ where it states that a full name cannot be used, so I didn’t see any problem with mentioning T….. J D… at all.  So I queried them back asking about it stating I’d leave it until I heard back from them.

In the meantime someone had suggested tagging the entry viewable by friends only, meaning only other LJ users on my friends list.  I had previously decided not to do that as there’s only four people on the list, but then I realised four people being able to read it was better than none, so I restored the old entry.

I guess it was just as well, because LJ abuse never got back to me, slackers. (c:
