So I was asked to get on my knees and suck some major dick today at work in the form of an article for our org's daily newsletter that makes its rounds every day into my spam folder.

Beware that there is quite a large amount of ass-kissing and sucking up to a particular vendor. The majority of the article isn't worded as I worded it (editors) but it sure makes me come off as if I have my lips firmly attached to the ass of every member of splunk's board of directors.

So please, for heaven's sake. If you read the article, do not come to this blog and give me praise for how glowing of an article I wrote for splunk; it isn't like that. Splunk is cool, no doubt, but they are far from where they were a couple years ago.
