What we should be angry about isn't that this stuff is low quality - it's that it was obviously never inspected, or at least not to the same standards as the work of ordinary contributors. This 'portfolio' of cr@p (let's call it a port-phony-o) was loaded directly by an insider or employee, the inspectors never looked at it. This isn't conspiracy theory, it's really the only explanation I can think of. And like someone else said above, it's likely the background images were stolen.
Whatever one might say about Oringer, he doesn't seem to be a crook. So how would he react if he saw this account? Is there any discussion of this on SS's own forum?
having been with top mgt and being in one situation where i did get to know where CEO stands,
i have always said i trust Oringer , but never the floor management front line team leads.
i was in these sort of front line team lead many times in my early days, and yes,
there is a lot of bs going on amongst the floor mgt and their own ppl,
where we team leads had to lick boots and eat $h*t while the relatives and cahoots of the
floor mgt clique slack off big time (ie. extended breaks , coming in drunk, leaving early,etc)
one day, i by chance got to meet a CEO , not realising who he was, in the lift,
and when he asked how i like working there, i spilled the beans about all the crap we team leads
were taking. oblivious to me he was one of the big guys.
needless to say, the next week, he came in to reveal himself, and a lot of heads were rolling
and the floor and his relatives were given the pink slip quick.
once again, i found out that CEOs don't expect their floor managers to be this way,
they trusted their mid management to hire the right ppl..
and never look to see what is going on down below.
unless something really bad happened, where they had to come to do damage control
or got someone to narc on the floor managers, like i did unsuspectingly.
anyone knows anyone who is a team lead in ss??? better still, anyone knows
a private line to Oringer???
reiterate - I too believe Oringer is not a crook.
but then again, many of the USA voted for Nixon and he too admitted that he "was not a crook"
and later on, others voted for Clinton who said he never had $*x with monica
as the great Alvin Lee ( RIP)once said, i may be wrong but i won't be wrong always!!!
