GSK's Titty Tantrum Over Cafe Pharma


Have Glaxo shot themselves in the foot?

It's not often I laugh at the tactics of GSK but this latest had me biting the leg of my table - I was in a state of complete apoplexy upon reading Ed Silverman's article,
Glaxo Blocks Employee Access To CafePharma.

It appears Glaxo don't like what is being said on the boards at Cafe Pharma, so, just like big powerful multi-billionaires do, they block access to the website.

I have, in the past, posted various threads from the Cafe Pharma forum - much is posted anonymously so it's difficult to ascertain whether or not the posts are genuine. However, there are some posts of real quality on there and it's obvious to all and sundry that there are many disgruntled employees working for GlaxoSmithKline.

I find this latest move by GSK totally baffling. Their PR Department must have handed its reigns over to some kid on a youth opportunities employment programme or something.

If you want to get the backs up of those you employ then try and suppress them.

This is one almighty clanger dropped by GSK - Did they not foresee this?

I'm glad they didn't because now we can all have a good laugh at their expense.

Here's a thread from Cafe Pharma that is comic genius. [Cafepharma access Blocked at GSK]

I can just picture it now:

GSK employee has bad day.

Decides to post on Cafe Pharma.

Learns that access has been blocked.



Goes home later that evening and spills the beans on GSK.

Genius PR from Glaxo!
