For all those advertising people out there who follow my occasional ramblings… (…how are you both by the way? 🙂 ) …there’s been a bit of a hubbub brewing in my local Advertising market regarding a few large client moves.

Clients moving agencies is not the issue I’m writing about today – the issue for me is (as always) the snyde, cynical and vindictive way the local industry boffins respond to the move.

Frankly, the comments from some of my peers this time around have been so disgustingly acerbic, and the moderation of these comments so lax –  that for the first time in my career I have been genuinely ashamed to refer to myself as a Perth creative.

If you’re the kind of marketer who gets a vicarious thrill out of watching other marketers tear each other apart, you may get a real kick out of following all the nastiness at its source.

I’ve written a couple of emails to the editor of the blog in question, asking some pointed questions. He’s actually a very fair and decent man on the whole, so hopefully he’ll be getting back to me sometime soon…


UPDATE: After two weeks I have hard nothing back from the magazine in question, which I find a little disappointing. I’ll be writing another blog post on this issue sometime shortly…
