I actually recently read in the news a couple weeks ago, that a particular state made it illegal for employers to review facebook pages before making decisions to hire (I can’t remember which state this was though). But yes, I think for any employer or school to look at a forum where someone is, for the most part anonymous (or presumes they are anonymous), is unfair. I suppose this is really just a matter of opinion though.
But, what if they're talking about that particular school or business? (Like what occurs here). I mean surely you realize there's a limit.
Well, if they are under what is presumed to be an anonymous name, I still am having a hard time accepting that they should be exposed. That said, of course there is a limit, because even someone who post anonymously should reasonably expect that their post will draw attention if they are extremely negative, and harmful to the school/ business’ reputation. Seriously though, how many people are stupid enough to say seriously negative things against a school or business that they have applied to while awaiting a decision? I am not saying that it does not happen, and I can even see a little frustration while awaiting a decision, but to publicly bash an institution repeatedly to me sounds stupid, especially if you are hoping to be a part of them.
Still, you are actually bringing up a lot of points that I didn’t think of before posting this thread, and I will be man enough to admit that you have me rethinking my position a little. But not entirely.
