    Name calling?

    You were offended with being called a PR specialist?

    Even after I admitted being trained in the field?

    WOW!

    I'm pretty sure I was about 15 years old when I realized that name calling was a sign of true lack of maturity. I also believe that spelling often shows how much time someone puts into a post such as these. Furthermore it shows intelligence, or a lack thereof.

    What the supermods come along and do is up to them. I have certainly had my moments with them, so if you get banned or the thread is locked DEAL WITH IT!

    Thanks for "putting me in my place though" I needed that.

    Oh and the infamous blacklist still doesn't exist!

    Now let me guess what happens next. The super moderator shows up "shocked" just "shocked" at my reply to you two clowns, and locks the thread and bans me (or tries). LAME!!!!!!!! Get a new act you two, this one is boring.
    So you are unable to defend the argument, so you insult the posters? FYI, we have not exchanged more than jokes in months.

    I was amused with your Freudian slip.

    What is reality, is that you in all your multiple identities are now starting to learn how to communicate on the internet without losing your cool.

    Here are some new lines to gain understanding on how people communicate.

    Good point, but this is my understanding of it.~~~

    I completely disagree with what you posted. ~~~

    You are wrong. Here is a link to a citation that proves it, and here is the quote from it to illustrate my point.~~~

    I understand where you are coming from, but I respectfully disagree. The reason is~~~

    Next lesson will be on how to admit that the other person has a valid point. and you have changed your mind.

    I am on this board because flame wars are not permitted. The moderators know that I have refused to participate in boards where less than civil communication is accepted.

    If I have offended the gentile reader, I apologize.

    FuriousBob,

    The only thing you should be concerned about is the reference you may receive from your former employer. Although the management of your previous company may have a group of fellow professionals that your experience MAY be shared with, there is not official, hidden, secretive, infamous blacklist or black book. Reference my sig line for how I feel about rumors! All the best.

    OK, I have just reviewed the "sources" that you cited. According to your cite, the referenced book has exactly one line talking about blacklists and that one line says "Yes, companies do indeed have blacklists". According to THE BOOK that you cited, not only is that the single line in whole book on black lists, but the paragraphs on either side of the single line talk about actions that a single company takes all by themselves. Which was not what the OP was talking about. Or what CBG was talking about. In fairness to the book, what I read seemed mildly interesting, just not a "proof" of a multi-party blacklist.

    I do not want to complain, but I was kind of hoping to find some "there" there. Or when I Googled. You know, an actual conspiracy of more then one company acting in concert to deny employment to others.

    But since your research was able to turn up the picture of a Hotty!, I guess everything else evens out.

    I know of one place where blacklists are rampant - with banks and AMCs (appraisal management companies) pertaining to appraisers. And once you're on a blacklist, it's next to impossible to get off without suing. To top it off, there's a company called MARI where banks report such things, and you (an appraiser) can't even get access to the list unless you agree to not sue if you're on it.

    What's worse, is the list is just as likely to have an appraiser who wouldn't 'hit the number' needed to make the loan go through, as to have a bad appraiser.

    So, anyone who's purchasing a house or doing a refinance, the chance are good that the appraiser you get is going to be a number hitter, who was chosen because they would take a lower fee than all the other appraisers on their 'do use' list. We just heard about one appraiser sending her high school kid out to the property to take notes and photos, didn't even measure! What a scam!

    Fine, have it your way. Despite the fact that many if not most employers do not let line supervisors or anyone else but HR give out references, somehow or other such a blacklist has not only managed to exist but to avoid the notice of HR for decades.

    If you say so.

    I WAS the HR department at at least two companies.

    It's quite possible that certain companies may have their own internal list (otherwise known as employees ineligible for rehire) but that is not the same thing as an intercompany database of blacklisted employees.

    Ditto. I've also been in HR for 30+ years and there's simply no such thing as a blacklist.

    Well given the link you posted I would take that attorneys advice, however you have already secured a new position, for a court to enjoin a company from any kind of a list they would want to see blood: terminations, employees not hired after leaving, some other type of economic interference. Most definitely there are lists, particularly with the Internet and the ease of information blogs, Twitter, texting and social networking sites are a sign of the times, so the technology is there.

    To believe that no such thing could possibly exist is to believe employers don't share information at all, and that definitely is not the case.


    Oh God !
    PLEASE PLEASE don’t say that !
    You have no idea what you could be starting ! ! !

    Like Santa Claus, there is no such thing as, a black list
    That subject, like the proverbial dead horse, has been

    BEAT T O DEATH !

    Instead, you should say….

    Somewhere…

    Somehow….

    A BLACK BALL has fallen out of it’s bag,

    and it has your name on it,

    and it’s going to be passed around.

    And there is not a **** thing you can do about it.

    Anyone with an once of brains knows very well you will NEAVER EVER see such a thing that you could hold in your hand,
    or store in a drawer,
    called a BLACK LIST

    In truth, if there were such a thing,
    you would not have a list,

    YOU WOULD HAVE EVIDENCE.

    Nor, will you find,
    BLACK BALLS anymore,
    those days are gone too,
    they went out of style some fifty, sixty or more years ago.

    These days,
    it’s all done

    by

    word of mouth….~~~~~
