Grouchy Student Has a Close Call

Here's an interesting story that easily relates to us as students. It's from the The Stanford Daily Online paper.
Listen to what got this dude in trouble:
"All in all, it was the most miserable, sleazy, cheap operation I have ever worked for," former Ampex employee Scott Cargle wrote on a Yahoo! message board in 2001 after he was laid off. "I just wonder how the crooks fooled everyone for so long." Soon after the words were posted, the company sued Cargle for libel.

The California Court of Appeals recently ruled in Cargle’s favor, which was good news for several Stanford students."

The next time you feel like griping online about your employer, think twice and don't overdo it. You may not get off as easy as this guy.
