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 started at SGI: it was an anything-goes forum for venting. It was a place to get things off your chest in as inappropriate and vitriolic 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.
