Normally I stand by anything I say online, which is why I never post under an alias. This post previously detailed the antics of someone who was trying to troll me in a professional capacity. The blog post put that conversation online with the purpose of having this person’s potential employers see it. Well, it had a different effect: the lesson landed even closer to home than intended.
After this person pleaded with me to take down the post, I’m going to play nice and retract it. As I said, I would normally not do this–my philosophy is to let people lay in the grave they dig for themselves–but this person can thank my wife for convincing me to remove it.
This is conditional on me never hearing from this person again, or somehow learning he repeated the behaviour illustrated in the original post. If either condition is not met, the post goes back up.
