- Techdirt:Fired For Blogging? Not Exactly...
Sounds about right - "Now, of course, you can argue that what they said should not have been a firable offense, and that companies need to recognize that employees now have much louder virtual megaphones to use in bitching about their employment situation, but people aren't getting "fired for blogging.""
