- Please never touch my hair or any of my body parts; not even jokingly.
- Please do not talk about my private life or about my boyfriend/future husband in any terms especially negative terms.
- Please be careful with your "jokes" which are at many times inappropriate, sexist, vulgar and very embarrassing not only to me, but everyone present.
- Please keep your negative personal opinions of others (including family members and/or coworkers) not present at the time of your comments, to yourself. I feel, at times, it puts me in a very uncomfortable position.
since you're a fan of occam's razor... is it more likely here that she's saying that she doesn't want #3 and #4 done TO HER... or AT ALL TIMES whether she is in the room or not, whether you are at work, in the company, at the grocery story, with your dog?
sure, her language leaves a lot to be desired... but people are usually pretty sloppy writers. the second sentence of your first post contains omits a word that undermines the meaning... but in context to points 1 and 2, does it really sound like she's trying to tell you how to run your life?
so b.s. meter is ticking because you're setting up a straw man to knock down triumphantly.
"I don't recall item #1 but will certainly endeavor to be extra careful."
and yet, in the lawyer document you link to... you seem to recall the specifics of the incident in detail. so what happened ollie north? this kind of convenient "i do not recall"s and selective memory doesn't help your case.
and again, since you're a fan of occam's razor:
Witness statements found in the response from Miseta's attorneys, however, contradict the claim. One employee specifically testified in her deposition that Miseta gave her a week's advance notice that she would be leaving Stardock, so that she "knew where [Miseta's] files were" and had access to relevant Google docs. Others had no recollection of Wardell or HR manager Angela Marshall (Wardell's sister-in-law) ever mentioning missing documents causing trouble with Elemental.
A former Stardock employee, speaking with Kotaku on the condition of anonymity, confirmed that a mere two weeks before launch, Elemental had many technical issues that had nothing to do with its marketing. The employee also added that at the time, nobody mentioned any materials having gone missing or any sabotage having taken place and showed Kotaku communications from Wardell that indicated satisfaction with how Miseta's staff replacement was taking over the review kit and review guide process.
doesn't seem as cut and dried as you seem to want to present it considering all points mentioned above... PLUS:
"Witness depositions included in the case documents refer to multiple comments from Wardell to female employees about their breast and bra sizes, and one incident where he asked Miseta to attend a media tour because "[her] nipples look better on TV." They also describe a time on a media tour when Wardell's visit to the hotel room Miseta and another female colleague were sharing made Miseta feel uncomfortable."
since you like using the morale and jolly disposition of your workers as testament to your innocence (testimonies given in anonymity notwithstanding), wouldn't the fact that the plaintiff is making over $100,000 now be testament to her reasonableness as an employee?
so if you want your day in court, you'll have it. but you have to know that if you want to win the battle ahead of time, you might have to talk about those aspects of the case that paint the events in quite a different light than you present.
p.s. used to be a fan but if these charges have legs behind them, i've got a face palm with your name on it.
