    CONTEST
    Guess the dismissal of Mark Agnesi: FTW

    Rules:

    Of 26 dismissal announcement dates you may pick one number so that our most active posters will get a fair chance of selection.

    Breaking earliest selection days into 3 thirds anticipates an earlier-the-better sacking, rather than a later one ie cancer B gone asap.

    A 3-way tie for the winning day is determined by time nearest that choice. 0600 EST determines "AM" 1200 EST for "Noon" and 1530 (3:30pm EST) is "Evenings."

    Too soon in your estimate: dates outside of this tables' range will be added if you choose one, please be creative.

    1. Sunday 6/30 am
    2. Sunday 6/30 noon
    3. Sunday 6/30 eve

    4. Monday 7/1 am
    5. Monday 7/1 noon
    6. Monday 7/1 eve

    7. Tuesday 7/2 am
    8. Tuesday 7/2 noon
    9. Tuesday 7/2 eve

    10. Wednesday 7/3 am
    11. Wednesday 7/3 noon
    12. Wednesday 7/3 eve

    (skip thurs July 4. nobody works 7/4 except crack dealers)

    13. Friday 7/5 am
    14. Friday 7/5 noon
    15. Friday 7/5 eve

    (weekend 7/6-7/7 skipped for tequila shots sweating the inevitable)

    16. Monday 7/8 am - DogsOfDoom
    17. Monday 7/8 noon - ObiPlexiNobi
    18. Monday 7/8 eve - Mickeydg5

    19. Tuesday 7/9 am - JustinRhoads80
    20. Tuesday 7/9 noon
    21. Tuesday 7/9 eve

    22. Wednesday 7/10 am
    23. Wednesday 7/10 noon
    24. Wednesday 7/10 eve

    25. Thursday 7/11 all day
    26. Friday 7/12 all day - MichaelRoe

    The winner will receive a broken headstock, .4 ounces of 43 gauge magnet wire harvested from the ripped wings of the elusive Copper Faery and a bottle of anything... to go.

    Judging Committee (Mr. Ohms) reserves right to provide substitutes up-or-down in value, or no value.

    SUMMARY OF CONTEST

    Gibsons Mark Agnesi uploaded a derply offensive YT video maligning the player community, their trade associates, movie, media publishers and broadcast networks all in one shot. Huge fail we all seen it.

    Since the disheveled-looking King James "Just Curious" Curleigh hired the homeless-looking Agnesi with the title "Director: Brand Experience" it is expected Agnesi may hide behind a title to delay his exit if a resignation request is refused.

    But he must go.

    I would advise as CEO (not that I care) what Curious J. can fight back with, is demoting him to VP of Washroom Management, taking out trash hes accustomed to flinging on the Gibson yt channel, then firing him.

    I would not advise listening to excuses for the inexcusable actions Mark Agnesi perceived as acceptable use of the login password entrusted to him.

    This cannot wait.
    It will not pass.
    Is rehab inevitable? We dont care.
    Leave.

    This "brand experience" has been shamed and it reflects back on Curious J the former shoes salesman (see his LinkedIn if you doubt, its true) who selected Agnasi - worst choice!

    The Guitarologist or Phil McKnight - either one of these guys would have been a better choice because they have the self-awareness Mark lacks.

    Make your selection, and good luck; contest ends upon Mark Agnesi's firing.

    Mark Agnesis did a wonderful job at Norm's Rare Guitars YouTube channel, 'Guitar of the Day' show. Your fangs are showing, guys.

    Do companies actually publically sack their youtube guys, unless they went so far off the reservation that a press release refuting association with said debacle is deemed necessary??

    I was under the impression they usually just get disappeared

    I don't want to see anyone fired.

    The negative issue is the Gibson Corp.

    Mark is just getting a paycheck.

    DoD chooses number #16?

    Excellent choice my friend! If the rules allowed Judges to vote it would be my own choice, too.

    The reasoning is manifold:

    - it's after the Holiday
    - the Board shows it gave 2 wk to consider the matter
    - Monday morning before noon gives sufficient notice to the chick sending the PR wire out that the CEO and his raggedy doppelganger have been dismissed.

    Rick, you forgot to issue a choice.

    Its only a contest if you enter a choice, and I know you.

    You want nothing else than to win!

    I dont think this was mark agnesi's ideas. I think someone higher up influenced this fuck up. If it was Mark's idea though than I can see his dismissal

    He's a Director, Justin!

    Selected by the CEO nonetheless.

    Mark has the Gibson login email and pissword for the Youtube channel, and he therefore either has direct responsibility if not uploading the final edit personally.

    We all have the freedom to fail in this country, and because I dont want that fate for you Brother: I am assigning Tuesday, 7/9 with the morning slot to you.

    Good luck, Number #19!

    If you cared (most wont, but rules indicated I had to do my research) the LinkedIn page for a certain person named Mark Agnesi shows he is still active with Norm's Rare Guitars.

    Absent new position updates after 90 days from an old appointment indicates lack of confidence in one's new employer.

    It can also be seen as conflict of interest; for example, the NDA's these higher positions require against confidential information being passed, are to keep Norm's Rare Guitars from having an anti-competitive edge against other dealers who risk huge sums to gain end-column pricing as the best deal.

    Holding onto this obvious conflict of interest shows Mark is really not serious about his non-disclosure agreements, or the new position.

    You're assuming a lot at Mark's expense. You know what they say about 'assuming'.
