I've had three gigs where this subject came up.

Where I am now, my manager not only knows that I participate in these
lists, but will, time to time, ask me to post a question. In fact,
the company has a web page with guidelines on how to participate
(what to say and not say) in lists, blogs, etc.

A previous gig, my instruction was to not include the company name in
the post, such as a sig, because they wanted to make sure that if
someone did a search on the company name, my posts wouldn't be
included in the results.

And, BTW, when I was being considered for this position, they did a
search on my name and it was because of my posts (what I say and how
I say it) on this and framers that added to their opinion to
interview me.
