Bad Form? - New comment on Spitfire Backfire, Live Labs, and Not My 1,400.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Spitfire Backfire, Live Labs, and Not My 1,400":

"...a number of you are either in the non-presently-Microsoftie 1,400 or know plenty of people in that pool."

However, we appreciate that you left the original post sit out there unchecked for more than two weeks so those of us "non-presently-Microsoftie 1,400" could wonder what the hell was wrong with us.

I have to agree with this, Mini -- it was bad form to leave the original post for weeks after the comments started flooding in.

It feels like you had an ulterior motive for putting that statement out there.

(Bad form yes, ulterior motive no. I just found it pretty curious that everyone I knew affected [developers] were rehired.)


  • I was the original poster. Although I believe you had no ulterior motive, I wish you had mustered enough common sense to realize that leaving that out there might suggest to anyone who reads your blog (including former-MSFTers who now work at other places that might have open jobs) that the non-rehireds were those at the bottom of the barrel.

    I am also a developer -- dumped when my team was dumped in January. I was promoted 5 months prior to the layoff and did well in the last stack rankings (20 percent/exceeded).

    It's not easy finding work out here, and it doesn't help when people like you, Mini, are planting seeds of doubt about the worth of those of us who didn't end up back on the Microsoft payroll -- or anyone else's yet either. Many of us are good employees who got a bad break.
