And then there are some companies who are now making their employees sign "I
will not make any public postings to any internet or other public forum while
I am employed by "x", where such posting is not of a strictly personal
nature".

Literally any posting to any forum that cannot be absolutely described as
"personal" is grounds for immediate dismissal.  

Things are getting rough out there.  First it was SLAPP suits, and now they
just build it into your contract.  Of course, if you sign, then I guess
you've got it coming, but still...

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and 
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
