He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.

MySpace

It's a bad, bad thing. Admittedly, it's not as bad as Bebo, but it's still on the dark side in terms of site hosts. Garish mini-sites, screamingly bad designs, awful pictures, nasty txtspk and an inherent wish from each poster to be really alternative and in-duh-vid-ual. Yeah, right.

What started me off on this tangent was a thought. I was thinking about an entry I made back in February, when I was considering writing about my job (*clicky*). I decided against that, a decision I'm happy with and a policy I intend to continue. However this time I thought I'd have a search to see if anyone else was writing about my job. On the balance of probabilities, this seemed quite likely - there are 850 staff where I work.

Enter MySpace.

So, here's the dilemma. What do you do when you've find a couple MySpace sites/blogs, with names and all (even voices on one), that occasionally take the piss out of a manager who happens to be your work colleague? Gosh! It just gets more fun, doesn't it? I guess I am duty bound to tell him, even though it could potentially be a case of passing him the can opener to allow the worms to come wriggling out.

Pass me my thinking grenades.....
