    Something smells slightly fishy here.

    Do not sign up with your name or nickname you might go by at work. Also do not reveal where you work or what company you work for. Some on here do and that is their own business. They may not be too worried about it. That is fine. But, if you plan on remaining completely anonymous keep it simple. Don't reveal any personal information that might give you away.

    Just a reminder.

    I was kicking around the "online users" and noted that there were 20 people viewing the forums that were not signed on. So you do not have to be a member of the 'vine to read the forums, only to post to them.

    Then I noticed how many net bots and spiders were visiting the site. So a search of the terms we use like the names of the locate firms, state names , names of the utility companies we locate for etc. show up in a Google search. What we post today can be found by a Google search within the next 24 hours.

    So not only can the managers of the locate companies read what is going on in these forums the managers of the utility companies that contract out to the locate firms can read these forums.

    No wonder our bosses 'may' not like our posting here.

    Seems to me if everything were on the up and up, and integrity were being used by both leaders and followers, there would be no reason to find fault with anything being said here. Problem is, too much bs, too many lies, too much cover up, too much politics in this industry. Not sure why it has to be that way. Locators and companies exchange benefits. Locators are paid a salary by the company in exchange for their expertise. This is not a personal matter, as some would make it out to be. Professionalism is almost nonexistent in leadership. Time to re-evaluate our leaders.

    Howdy fellers, thanks for the welcome back. Yep he's still locating. Things never change, as you all already know. Can anyone tell me anything about Synergy One?

    I know it's next to impossible to get in touch with anyone at synergy. Took me a year to set up the channels to get word to a locator over there to save them on a damage.
