Be Mature For YBnormal's Sake (Please sticky)
It is obscenely unfair to terminte a dedicated empolyee on the grounds of an assumption. Although there was a "stated" rule about the use of cameras on the premisise, there doesn't seem to be any written rules that we know of. Granted, most of us aren't auto workers, and come from a plethora of backgrounds and jobs. The mere thought that Jose was responsible for the illegally released pictures of the HEMI is fully INANE
(Inane: Without contents; empty; void of sense or intelligence; purposeless; pointless; characterless; useless)
What kind of inept individual would be so insideous that they would release a picture illegally of a new HEMI? Well, we all know that Jose is not that kind of person, and it cannot be him.
More than anything, we need to find the individual who is respnosible for the entire situation and let Diamler-Chrysler know who is actually to blame. While this may not get YB his job back, it will however take blame and possibility of a lawsuit and/or further financial handicap off of his trail. Now some people say, "Well we can't do anything, we're just little old me!" But I completely disagree. There are several very capable, smart, and extremely helpful people on this site. It is crucial that we all work together to find the actual offender that Jose is being framed as. Also, look at it like this, there are over 1,000 active members on these boards, and all of us are completely obsessed with the Intrepid and similar design Chryslers. If many or all of us manage to get a hold of the offices, managers, write letters, or do anything we possibly can, there is bound to be some kind of result. Now do bear in mind this:
We need to approach this in an appropriate manner. DC isn't going to start to change its mind with crude comments such as, "Diamler-Chrysler Sucks!!" We need to take a mature and adult-like approach to the situation. It is important to realize the type of people we are dealing with. These are very rich, high class, sophisticated people. If we don't put ourselves on a level where they can even think about taking us seriously, there isn't a chance that YB will see any good repercussion. It is also very important to support Jose, as losing such a steady job without notice is very hard on a family, its income, and the well-being of the members in general. This site has been profoundly lucky to have Jose helping us and being our friend. If Diamler-Chrysler sees that the people he's pretty much "selling Intrepids" to are not trying to exploit the company but hurrah in triumph at its great design, they may (but not guarunteed) realize that not Jose, nor any other DI.net member means any harm. But most importantly, this is what needs to be done:
-Stay mature: Don't let your anger control you, keep your cool and good results are bound to happen
-Don't brush this off and say, "Tough Break." This is a serious issue and our friend needs our help
-Don't forget that Jose no longer has a job, support him in any way that you can.
Thank you, and please help support our friend.
