I was present at the discussion Dan refers to, in this case I don't think it was a smear, just a recitation of a series of unfortunate events. But I agree, in general such things are not something to be propagated. Dan isn't really giving any detail that couldn't be inferred from usenet postings, other than the firing from Oracle - and given some of the slander the idiot has spewed in the past about others, even if it weren't true, he could hardly complain. In general in the US, HR departments won't go beyond merely confirming someone worked somewhere, because they don't want the liability that would arise from either saying they were fired - employee sues - or not saying they were fired - next employer getting reference sues.

Of course, one is free to disbelieve either Dan or myself.
