Dooced

leave a comment »

According to Guardian, ‘dooced’ is a verb that mean ‘to be fired from one’s job as a direct result of one’s personal website’. historically, dooce is the name of Heather Amstrong’s personal blog. she write an online personal diary. And, this is her case:

Primarily, Armstrong became one of the first high-profile cases of somebody being fired for writing about her job. After describing events that her employer – a dotcom start-up – thought reflected badly on them, Armstrong was sacked. The incident caused such fierce debate that Dooce found itself turned into a verb that is used in popular parlance (often without users realising its evolution): ‘dooced – to be fired from one’s job as a direct result of one’s personal website’.

dooced, the verb remind me Prita Mulyasari’s case. she had different case. few years ago, Prita wrote a complaint and post it in a mailing list. the complaint addressed to an international hospital named ‘Omni International Hospital’. because of the mailing list post, Prita sued by the hospital. actually, prita’s case was the biggest yet controversial case in Indonesia that mainly caused by internet post. Prita’s case was different. may we should make a verb based on Prita’s. new verb that mean ‘ to be sued because of mailing list post’. so what do you think? what is the appropriate new verb?
