Badattitude is a newsgroup/mailing list for disgruntled
employees usually employed at the same company.
The list is a forum for people to vent regarding anything and
everything, related or not related, to their company -
without limitations or reservations.
In the words of Jamie Zawinski:
"The Bad Attitude newsgroup was a continuation of a tradition
: it was an anything-goes forum for venting. It was a place to get things off your chest in as inappropriate
a way as you felt like. It was for catharsis
, and telling the truth without fear of reprisals
Originally the first Badattitude newsgroup
began at SGI and was later on adopted by Mosaic Communications.
