For people who find themselves not in the work loop any
more, not part of a team, not part of a productive
workgroup, not on a career progression, and not really
interested in putting on a pretence of best behaviour in
to suck up to other bastards in the hope of favouring the
of them getting you a job according to their random whim.
||Does somebody, who just e-mailed "wassup !!!" to the director of a very prestigious institution in search of an employee, qualify ? ... >_<
||I disagree: By creating a new site you would be contributing to the Balkanisation of the internet and effectively making LinkedIn an even greater concentrated focus of ambitious, getting-ahead, career-focused borishness. It would be better to immerse the SeparatedOut membership in LinkedIn and thus dilute its "I've got a better job than you" greasy-pole culture.
||I see what you mean, but it would involve
tolerating the best behaviour show-off world of
LinkedIn, while infiltration occurs.
||Ive always maintained that to proof against
outside agents searching your moral and social
integrity, everyone should dirty up their socnet
accounts with a high degree of fake (or perhaps
not) slutty evidence of disgraceful behaviour and
thinking. If everybody did this, it would devalue
such sources as reliable ways to pre-screen
applicants, etc. LinkedIn is the exact opposite
portraying its members as squeaky clean desirable
impressive upcoming sucky team-friendly
mindslaves suppressing anything that would
ever tarnish this impression.
||But I *am* a squeaky-clean desirable impressive
upcoming sucky team-friendly mindslave. Just look
at whom I hang around!
