Laurie Ruettimann over at Punk Rock HR has four simple rules to live by:

  1. Don’t be an asshole.
  2. Don’t divert attention away from the mission and vision of the organization.
  3. Don’t cause problems that are bigger than the problem we’re trying to solve.
  4. If you don’t like it, leave.

Beautiful, every single one of them. I’d like to club everyone who posts at anonymous whining sites like jobvent.com with these rules, starting with #2 and #4.
