JobSchmob.com Frequently Asked Questions


Am I anonymous when I post?


To us you are. We don't track who posted what or where you were when you posted. That's your business.

We do use cookies to remember your handle/id for your convenience. For further protection of your identity, uncheck the "Remember Me" box when you post or comment. For even further protection, use discretion when you post. If you post from work, be aware that your employer could use software that tracks your internet usage.

What about when I'm logged in, am I still an anonymous poster?


Yes. You're logged in as your identity. We don't have any other information about you other than what you may have listed in your profile. And we do not record your IP address with anything you do on the site.

Can I use names of companies, people or places?
Please do not use real names of people. Places or company names are at your own risk. Keep in mind that if you work for a small company or in a small town and you don't want to be found out, it is best to be vague with details or just leave them out altogether.

Do you edit the stories or comments?


On occasion we will edit posts if they contain names of people and the story could be damaging to someone's reputation. We also reserve the right to remove sexually explicit, racist, sexist or offensive content without warning or notification.

My company has a policy against blogging, is posting on your site considered blogging?


It's kind of a gray area and you should examine your company's policy. JobSchmob.com is not a personal blog per se, but it is public. Company gag orders seem to be a growing trend and that's both sad and scary. We don't believe all the power should rest on the side of companies, which is why we created Job Schmob in the first place. If companies don't want bad things said about them, they should treat their employees with respect and generosity. They should work to resolve employee issues and keep them happy. If employees are happy, they won't complain. With the exception of trade secrets or proprietary information, a gag order on employees is very telling about a company's attitude towards their work environment. If companies have nothing to hide, then what do they have to worry about?

Why don't you require usernames or passwords?


Whatsa matter, you don't get enough of that at work? We want you to be anonymous and free to speak your mind. The best way to do that? Don't require reqistration.

I want to know who posted something on your site. Can you tell me?


Sorry, no. The whole premise of JobSchmob.com is to allow anonymous posting.

Will you remove a post if I ask you to?

It is completely up to our discretion. When ASKED NICELY we do honor requests to remove individual names from posts.

When threatening legal action, please be aware that we know our rights. If a court were to find that a post constitutes libel or defamation, the person who posted it would be held legally responsible for damages to the reputation of that person or business. Under Federal law (the Communications Decency Act), because JobSchmob.com does not censor posts or investigate them for accuracy, JobSchmob.com is not legally responsible for the items that are posted, even if they contain remarks that are defamatory. However, this law does not protect the person who leaves the complaints from responsibility for those complaints.

E-Card FAQ


Why did I receive this card?


Hmmm, now that is a dang good question which may require some good old fashioned inner reflection. Did you make someone angry? Do you call too many meetings? Do you take your coworkers or employees for granted? Is there something fishy going on in your department or company? Think about it; it might come to you.

Is there a way to find out who sent the card to me?


Sorry, no. We don't record who sends the cards or where they're sent from. It would defeat the whole purpose, no?

Why do you allow people to send cards like this anonymously?


Well...we're on a mission to help the working shmoe and help make a few things easier.

Is it really anonymous?


Yes. JobSchmob.com does not record who sends the cards or where they're sent from. We would recommend and highly advise that you do not send the cards from a work computer, as those corporate rascals have been known to keep track of that sort of activity. And if that happens, you're on your own.

Well...can I send a card of my own?

Why did I receive a Bosses Day card?


We don't know...were you bad? Yes? Then that's why. No? Then maybe it's someone playing a prank. Or maybe it's someone who isn't very happy with you right now. Either way you may want to consider laughing it off and being a cooler boss. Life is just too short.
