Once upon a time there was a website here called A SLAVE TO THE DIAL.
It was all about my experiences with DialAmerica Marketing, Inc., where I worked as a telemarketer for seven years.
I took the website down when I got a nasty letter from a lawyer.
I've been meaning to revise the site but frankly I don't know what's legal and what's not. The lawyer's letter has been analyzed by the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse, which is helpful, but I'm still at something of a loss.
I guess these poems are OK.
I don't see how anyone could object to these drawings of my old workstation, the office, and myself. My cartoon about the Life of a Telemarketer may be stupid, but surely it's legal. Same with my interpretation of the corporate motto.
I'm not so sure about these pictures of my bosses, though I've made every attempt to conceal their identities. What about this conversation and other select quotes from calls I made while working at DialAmerica? What about these excerpts from my own private journal?
Would it help if I added a disclaimer?
