Tonight I responded to a discussion board post seeking advice on getting a job in UX. In context, it was nice and normal and addressed the concerns in the original post. However, for some reason, my post went to an email list completely without context. Shortly after, I received an email from a CEO believing I was directing my response to her, which would have been completely inappropriate, and out of context - downright rude.
I'm now embarrassed and concerned - who else did my post go to? To protect my professional integrity, I'm no longer going to affiliate myself with this website until the discussion board bugs are resolved. I'm sorry I have to do this because I love the organization.
Putting this out there so if you got my post as an email you know that I'm not trying to suggest that everyone in IxDA revamp their resume.
