Blog with caution...

Post-Dispatch writer suspended after bosses discover his blog

Post-Dispatch managers took staff writer Daniel P. Finney's hard drive as
evidence of his
blogging (he wrote under the pseudonym "Roland H.
Thompson"), then suspended him. Ben Westhoff reports: "In his blog, begun
this past September, 'Roland H. Thompson' -- a reference to a song by one
of Finney's favorite musical artists, the late Warren Zevon -- took
frequent, thinly veiled potshots against his employer and co-workers. He
also wrote about stories he was working on for the paper." (Related Staci
