I stopped by the Job Vent site, haven't been there since July. Wow! Talk about someone 'selling out'! This site is now TOTALLY in the bag for Target. The hundreds of critical posts are gone, replaced by over 60 posts that all seem to LOVE Target. Must be that Target either bought the site or they slipped someone a good few bucks to redo the Tarbutt posts (http://tinyurl.com/2amahdj).
Target has a whole department that deals with the Internet and both buys up names of sites (ie: Target Sucks, F Target etc) and keeps up the payments on them to keep them out of the hands of irate bloggers (like me) who would grab onto something like http://www.targetsucks.com/* in an instant. At least two anti-Target union sites went bye bye a couple of years ago, couldn't afford the site rental payments I think, so now we are not only missing this Job Vent site but it has turned into a real Kiss Ass For Target site. Here is my July plug for the 'old' Job Vent site - R.I.P. Job Vent

You could opine that Target knew it sucked as long ago as 7/28/98 when it registered this name to keep it off the market. If they screw up and forget to renew it on 7/27/11 someone else might pick it up for use. (Gee, wonder who that might be?)
(what I originally posted about this site)
Take a look at: JOB VENT
This site should be required reading for Tarbutt employees. Yeah, that means you pencil pushers at HQ who look in here every few days, learn what your fellow employees in the DC's and stores really think of your crappy company.
Bookmark the site and go back every two weeks and see what new posts have been added.
