Is there such a thing? I’ve been posed and actually just recently accused by one of the two who I spoke “dearly” of in this post called:”Two tools on Facebook NOT to use!”
I did a quick search on both “online flogging” and “email flogging” and both searches don’t come up with much that is directly germane to the perceived definition of the terms. More accurately, flogging is defined by Merriam Webster as “to beat with or as if with a rod or whip” or “to criticize harshly.” So, this would basically mean that my post about the two guys who manipulated me into coming up to Seoul & persuade me to gather as much information for them for free (wasting my time & social equity in trying to acquire them contacts) along with “job speculation” or “employment lures” is “whipping them online” or “criticizing them harshly online.” Am I whipping them? I agree I am criticizing them as much as I can. When did criticizing become wrong?
They screwed me & now with the power of the Internet, I’m able to complain about it in a public forum so others won’t be abused by them again in the future. If one of my friends did this to me — manipulate me & hurt me in the end, I probably would have just as harsh words for them. However, the reason why they are friends and why the guys in the post “Two tools on Facebook NOT to use” are not is because my friends are ethical. They don’t use people.
Simply put, my post about them was also and very importantly to point out how NOT to abuse relationships or practice business in 2008. Be responsible in what you say and do. Don’t think communication is frivolous and the receiver of your emails just deletes them. Use your brain when you throw out offers or even feel free to point out that your “business development” or “sales tactics” are very loose & that you don’t always follow up on all that you throw out there. It will save you from getting “flogged on the Internet.”
