Yes, we’re the new kid on the block. But I’ve been writing here and there since 2005. Several employers thought it was a good idea to remove attribution once we parted ways, so several of these archived posts have links at the end, pointing to the original versions on Archive.org.
Employers apparently don’t take into consideration the fact that Archive.org will usually get attribution correct even years later. Yes, it’s a douchey move to not give credit where credit is due. I can point to several cases where the employer did NOT remove attribution when an employee left, and it did nothing to hurt them. In fact, it caused people like me to respect them more for being secure in who they are (and in maintaining the awareness that karma is a bitch).
So that’s why we have ready-made posts. They came from my head at some point. Hope you enjoy.
