Anna just got fired from her job for writing about it on her weblog. She mentioned one of the company's clients in an old entry (now gone), then a service that searches for companies found the entry, and she was let go because of a "breach of confidentiality." The worst part, imo, is that there's no stated policy against this at the company - but now that it's happened, the company's going to have a word with all of their current employees about it, to keep it from happening again. It really bites to be fired from your job for breaking a rule that you didn't know existed (and may not have existed!) when you broke it. I'm fairly pissed about this situation right now. Let's have some words of sympathy and/or support for Anna.

No, they just don't like me.
