I have come across another article from back in Dec 04, this time on the very high brow Wired News website rightfully entitled “Blogs May Be A Wealth Hazard”. Click here.

A really interesting dooce piece appears online at The Herald’s website here.

The ever reliable Register has covered the Waterstones story here.

And Blogcritics has a “Yet Another Sacking” article here.

Making dismissal by Blogging sound something like the McCarthy witch-hunts for Commies, Joe Gordon and Waterstones story has really unearthed a number of other “doocing” websites, most of which are American.

We now have the The Bloggers’ Rights Blog. A bit OTT but informative.

An article appeared on C-Net back in December written by the Queen Of The Sky herself, Ellen Simonetti. It is here.

Legal week produced an advisory article around that time also. It is here

And finally there is Morpheme Tales which has been collating Blog dismissal statistics.

Another article has cropped on the Waterstones blog dismissal on the BBC website. It can be found here.

The Guardian article re-appeared today, slightly revised and now wise a picture of the man in question, Joe Gordon. Aged 37 and referring to his boss a “smegger”, the article can be found here.

Worst Waterstones ever! Someone also said more can be read about him here.

The Guardian have also published online a great article called “Blogged Out Of Job”. It is here.
