There was a Farked Company website back in the early 2000s - dished dirt on tech companies.

Immature idiots. They had power and squandered it.

Reminds me a joke about Monica Lewinsky being young and naive. A mature woman would've gave Clinton a blowjob in exchange for raising the national minimum wage.

I wonder if that would count as prostitution.

It was also the original birthplace of HI, I'M GEORGE ZIMMER, OWNER AND CEO OF THE MEN'S WAREHOUSE copypasta.

Many years ago (early 2000s) I worked at Radio Shack. There was a RadioShacksucks website where people would rant about how terribly run their store was, what a moron their DM/RM was, etc. People with different levels of access would spill the beans on what kind of things were coming down the pipe.

It was through them that we found out they were redesigning our store layout three times in a year! *rolls eyes*

I had been told about the website from a coworker. They told some people, I told some people, etc.

District Manager comes for a surprise visit.

"Have any of you been to a website called RadioShackSucks?"

We all shake our head no.

"Well don't go there."

We found out later that he did that same private talk at every store in his district. Must have never heard of the Streisand effect. XD

IIRC, it was companies in general, tech companies were just the bulk of what they covered because the dot com bust gave them a LOT of material and a lot of farked companies. I remember Enron getting something like their "farked company of the year" award though.

One of my faves from back in the day... Web3isgoinggreat is my new hotness, less snarky but still providing my US RDA of schadenfreude.
