Venting:: The Politics Of Porn
A good diplomat is someone who can say "nice doggie" while patting it on the head, all the while the other hand is reaching for a stick.
Recent posts on boards as an example have troubled me regarding how fast everyone turns on people we once called 'friends'. I am sure that the owners and staff of PSW were not sitting up at night scheming on how to take as much money from the industry. Or are we all guilty of associations?
Other situations where diplomacy is working hard is posting something spiteful against someone then secretly negotiate peace in emails/icq's behind everyone elses back. Why is it now that being yourself is not longer acceptable?
Gone are the days of business ethics where your word was your bond. People use to work with me because of who I was, not because of the associations I had or company I worked for. Reputations were based on how they were treated as a client/friend rather than hearsay or who you work with.
I suppose the only politics of porn left is... "he who pays - stays" - forgetting that sometimes integrity, trust and an honest work ethic are no longer base requirements in this industry, is it really 'every man for themselves'??
