Yet another blogger fired

But this time, can you guess what corporate employer fired their blogging employee?

None other than Google, owner of Blogger. That's right folks, Blogger has fired a Blogger employee for blogging because they didn't like what he was blogging about. Something or other about not being especially happy with Google's renumeration package. Whatever.

As pointed out by Suw Charman, Google/Blogger apparently doesn't even have a written policy or guideline for their employees to go by. What's allowed? What's frowned upon by the corporate high geeks? Apparently saying anything about being unhappy, even in passing, gets you a ticket out the door. Sort of the same way North Korea runs things.

If you want to show your support, Mark Jen's site is here. Go take a visit and see what he has to say about being suddenly unemployed.
