Bad Employers list=Bad Idea. Sorry. ;-)
Like others have said, just because you had a bad experience at a place does not
others will/have had bad experiences at the same place. A public posting of bad
employers is libel lawsuit waiting to happen. The owner of the page/list, the
ISP supplier, and any contributers could end up in a world of hurt.
I perfer the idea of listing "good" places to work. However, just it was a good
place for you doesn't mean it will be good place for me. It all depends on your
perception of good.
