I, of course, am absolutely ignorant about US or certain of US State's laws. However, someone has created mine false fb and twitter accounts (have no idea, why). Posted pictures, tweets, other rubish. I did not make a big fuss, just out of curiosity - I'm a lawyer - investigated, what could I do about it. Appearantly, nothing. For social sites are treated by law not as "public media". (Due to same reasoning, you may swear in your entries, etc. - which is a good thing, from my point of view.)

Someone even has created and is actively using a false twitter account of a rather famous person in UK - Ian Hislop. And he could not get it deleted without a court case - which he did not initiate.

Oh, I am too nerdy, whatever. The point is... I forgot, sorry.

Notice that the PHB didn't put that request in writing, so you can bet that at some point in the future, Carol will be disciplined for running a "fraudulent" Twitter account. #EvilPHB

@codesan: Why would you ask a question, and then answer it yourself, in the next breath? Do you have an alter ego with excellent intuition?

Now Carol, on the other hand, has no doubt begun to collect photos that pudgy men have taken of their lower extremities, as well as the twitter addresses of good-looking employees who have friends at law firms . . . .

@yoshi314, I think companies just write them off against tax, somehow. Similar to Wally, they cannot afford to get rid of them.

@ccdesan - i suppose you didn't work enough in one, or are just lucky not to have one around.

in my previous position, i worked under a PHB, who had another PHB over him. the former was fired, the latter still works and derails various projects (and somehow manages to keep his job).

fortunately, i switched departments and do not have to answer to the remaining one.
