Good sentiment, but based on what happened to you, not to mention the dire things that have happened to other bloggers around the world, sometimes even imprisoned, it seems that writing in a blog is the equivalent of getting what you have written published in a daily newspaper.
One of the scariest comments I read so far on your situation, published on your blog, was someone whose message basically was it is stupid to criticise your employer and then seemed to go onto say that it was both fine and understandable - the way they reacted. So, according to this viewpoint, if you complain, in a public environment - say the pub, or a chat room on the internet - about your employer, it's understandable if you then get sacked. Well, if that is the case, that an employment contract isn't worth the paper it is written on if you don't have an opinion that "toe's the party line", what's "free speech"?
Good luck with your appeal, - and your mortgage repayments

The occasional corporate toadie is inevitable. I meet a lot more people who act that way in real life than in the blogosphere though, which is probably one of the reasons I love blogs so much.

I wonder if there are toadie blogs out there, maintained by people who write them in hopes that their bosses will see how incredibly loyal they are outside of work? I've never seen one, and I hope I never do.
