What Should I do about Workplace Harassment?
This is a common question but I think my situation might be unique. I have a boring data entry job, so the screen changes to the next order many times throughout the day. I have noticed that there will be messages in the upper left hand corner. Very small black text that flashes very briefly before the next screen loads. It's usually quite insulting ("You smell awful, go home." or "You should k***********f." or "I know who you really are". or variations on those themes). To me it's obvious the IT guy had to set it up, but it's not obvious to me if he set up himself or at the orders of someone higher up. Basically the way this is set I'll look insane if I say anything. Other employees have commented that their work was being sabotaged and were fired. I know to just quit is the obvious move, but I tend to like to hit back and don't know how.

Bring in a camrecorder and document it. Get any other proof you can. Show it to higher ups (but make sure you keep a copy). Then if you get fired, take it to the media.
