Live by the sword

So this story caught my attention.

Short version, employee went to a party that her boss wasn't invited to, boss fires employee accusing her falsely of being a Nazi sympathiser and promoting Nazi ideals in the business.

So at first glance you'd think that's pretty appalling.

Then we read what the employee's job was...

Nelson said one of her main tasks at work was to create false blogs using search terms that would trick Google's search engine, bringing the company's website to prominence on the Google search page.
After several failed meetings, Nelson was suspended for setting up a "Nazi sympathising email address", which included "hitlerhatesbabies", and using the password ilovehitler.
Nelson said because it was her job to create several email addresses, and because more conventional addresses had been taken, she had to think of unusual word sequences to come up with a unique one.

My sympathy, it disappeared.  If you choose to do a job which is at it's core a fraud, you need to accept that the people you are working for are scum.  Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Her boss sounds like paranoid nut case.
