It's just that I've sort of adopted and grown into the role of being a [email protected] that constantly bangs on about how the site could be improved and pointing out a lot of, depending on your pov, stupid management decisions etc. Nostalgia is a powerful catalyst for change and after three years of Teh Patent Scose "campaigning" I think the org has shifted as far down the CSR scale as it's ever going to. I reckon the stakeholder group to which I belong has lost a lot of it's influence and our vision of change is, for many reasons, unrealisable... s'all a fruitless endeavour now and therefore certain tasks I performed are no longer required - one of them being challenging the staff on certain issues. I think I'll stick to trying to learn some stuff from a few goons on here and trading related lulz(casm) etc.
I get rambly and tend to talk sh1te like this often when I'm tired and I got only three hours sleep last night... make what you will of these shenanigans.
I have an everyman face scose. I was once told I looked like Clint Eastwood - which pleased me no end - even though it came from another chap 30+ years my senior! Last weekend, in the village where I live, my step daughter-in-law was accosted by a stark naked man on her way home from the pub. He grabbed hold of her handbag and invited her to go with him. Who did the man look like? You guessed it - me! Just in case you're wondering, I had a water tight alibi so, no, it wasn't actually me!
I like the sentiments expressed in this thread - although I don't begin to understand why such threads aren't littered all over the site like confetti
