151. Here's why it's ridiculous to fire people over anonymoust internet posts.
This is what could have happened:

Say you're a freeper.

Step 1: Someone at DU could post with enough information to make it sound like you're that person, but make it sound like you're the most liberal person ever.

Step 2: Other freepers could read that post and try to get you fired for expressing liberal opinions.

{Now if that happened, freepers spread the word that apparently some asshole is trying to get them fired by spreading lies that they're liberal and maybe the witch hunters would have second thoughts about hunting witches.)

By the way, Wall guy, imagine you had covered your tracks by posting everything you did, but you indentified the product you were selling as the product sold by the biggest freeper at the show. They would have fired their own. What would people here think about that?
