  • Hate these articles that break every item in the list into separate pages, but the points raised here are all very good (a few sound totally insane to me too- taking your employees' frequent flier miles??)

  • as an educator, I experienced several of those. the anon eval, out of context is really fun when you are totally unable to figure when you did it or what you did in fact do.
