How To Handle Corporate Blackmail?
Just tell them you'll be having friends call periodically posing as potential employers. Let them know that if they say anything untoward about you while providing a reference, you'll see them in court.
For bonus points, mention that suing their asses for something as petty as that will likely be more profitable and less work than having whatever job they're trying to torpedo out from under you.
World of Warcraft Teaches the Wrong Things?
This guy's got a serious disconnect somewhere. I've got a CS degree from a nice 4-year school. Most who know me who would swear that stands for Counter-Strike, though, not Computer Science.
Even with my four years of advanced tactical training, I'm pretty sure I couldn't realistically (and more importantly, -shouldn't-) expect to sit on a rooftop somewhere and headshot a terror suspect with a pistol from 15 stories up. Likewise, having invested more hours than I care to think about in World of Warcraft, I don't expect to be able to walk outside, turn into a bear, and tank a core hound that just happens to be wandering down my street. It's just not going to happen.
I guess slamming the games is just easier than admitting your own delusions.
