I just deleted a draft of a post because it was related to my job. Yes, this is my personnel space and yes, I should feel open to say what I want.
But I didn’t. I had a long, well-linked post about a vendor related to my current work. It’s not the vendor we work with, it’s not even a company my group officially has a relationship with. But, and here’s what stopped me, people at my institution do have relationships with the company. I may cross paths with these people. The grants world isn’t that small. You see where this could lead.
I hate that I deleted it, even though it was probably the smart thing to do. Best case, I was on record with a flamer of a post. Worst case, I’d have dealt with that post for years.
God I hate politics.
