    Anyone here notice how fucked up those daily updates are?

    We're talking about spelling and grammar mistakes galore. Every single update.

    Is it Jason or an 5th grade Intern doing that stuff?

    If it's Jason, I'd fire him on the fucking spot. No "professional" editor I know would get away with all of those mistakes, and on a daily basis, (that is when the show is live). No way, no how. Pack up and fuck off scumbag.

    Not to mention the fact that Jason is nothing more than a hairy scum sucking little weasel, with an annoying personality and who would have no problem selling his mother down the river for a nickel and promotion.

    Or as a wise man once said,

    Anyone truly excellent won't apply because they will see through all those hollow, bullshit buzzwords.

    You can tell you'd be working with a bunch of middle-management heavy nincompoops.
