Forum Posting Recommendation: Do not use your employer name

Thanks for being a part of our active forum community.

Some users have registered for the forum by being quite honest about where they work, and this is shown as public information in every post they make. While I used to think this was fine, I have seen people get into trouble with their employers when they publish personal opinions on the Internet and list a company name. The problem is that others can read those messages as "Company" opinions.

As your moderator, I would recommend AGAINST putting an employer name in the public information fields on this forum. Many companies are quite sensitive about what their employees are doing during work hours, and posting your opinions can be very dangerous to your career if misread by others as company policy. Even when done on your own time. Even when using an anonymous name.
