It’s still around. Just no longer has anonymous comments. Things got, personal and targeted to people in the story

@CW1 It used to be the gossip column for adweek. Comments were anonymous so naturally the trolls came out of the woodwork. As soon as the comments were linked to a user’s social account, the gossip dried up. This was about 2-3 years ago, I think? An eon in internet time.

I never spent that much time on AgencySpy but it seemed like on every single post mentioning a person there would be a comment about how that person was a hack. "Oh Barack Obama? Total hack, I don't know how he even has a job"

Well, people felt they had a platform to amplify their worst inner thoughts on AP. To troll, risk free with a lot of (perceived) spectators. Here on FB, things are on an opt in basis and more intimate. Even when 🐠 are venting it’s in a good tone an not calling people by name. But definitely see frustrations and insecurities that should not be so prevalent. A great platform.

It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people.

My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.
