Jame A. Overton, Jr

Is no longer an employee at ACS and should not post items on this BLOG that legal council will find.

I realize that not everyone

I realize that not everyone likes everyone, but what gives here? I see several really good things being said, but the gay, small penis, dickhead, jerk, and death comments are really unnecessary!

And all he did was resign from this ACS company! He must have had good reason.

Sounds like everyone should leave this guy alone! No one deserves this - no one!

He was born a dickhead. Lived

He was born a dickhead. Lived his life as a jerk. And will die a knob.

Mr. Overton is one of the

Mr. Overton is one of the nicest, yet silliest (loves to laugh and make people laugh), smartest, and dedicated guy I have ever met.

honestly.....why does this

honestly.....why does this thread even exist? Does ACS and this Overton character have much relevance to the biotech world in the first place?

What made them say that this

What made them say that this Overton person had a short penis? That makes it clear what type of people are still working there. I surely wouldn't want to do business with them.

Overton... Take them to

Overton... Take them to court, watch them rot away in their lies. The best part of being one against many is the greater always has lies....

So, my girlfriend awoke me at

So, my girlfriend awoke me at 11:30 the other night and said, "Guess who's all over the Rumor Mill!" I had no idea what she was talking about, so I got up and low and behold, they are talking about him, the former Manager of Quality! I don't usually do this, but I want to help this guy. Here is what I know for a fact:

He helped start his company from initial conception through ISO 17025 accreditation. This process only took about 11 months, which is not bad at all. And with only 13 initial findings, the auditor said that most organizations (their first time out) have way more.

In reference to the comment about cal sheets being incorrect and them supposedly being corrected now that he resigned.
-He wasn't the only one that approved Calibration Certificates. -Did he sign off on some that still needed correcting, yes.
-Did others sign off on some that needed correcting, yes. Did they work together and get them corrected, yes.
-Is it still possible that since we are all human (some moreso than others) that errors will still be missed on a cal certs here and there, yes.

So, do they really believe that it was all the Manager of Quality's fault? Sounds like he's being made to be a fall guy to me!

I would also like to point out that he was also tasked with being on-site at multiple client sites, asked to be a salesman two days a week, all the while expected to be able to perform his Manager of Quality responsibilities. You as well as I know, this is virtually impossible.

While he was there, he was the greatest thing since sliced bread, even got a promotion and $10K salary increase, but now that he is no longer there, they are trying to make his name mud. He tried so hard to make a go of it, but they wore him down to nothing. I now know why he resigned from an $80K annual salary, the negative culture and drama, amongst other things that will not be mentioned here.

Ever heard this, when you point a finger at someone, you have three pointing back at you!

How do I know these things? Because I worked with him. His work ethic is strong and he will be a valuable asset to any company. Good luck buddy!

Overton has a short peni5

who is mr overton?

"Of course, we ALL should

"Of course, we ALL should know that ACS has cutting edge, disruptive technology..."

They do and now Putin will create the Overton/Snowden borg using this technology to take over the entire world. The rise of the machines has begun! Run for the hills!

And I also could not connect

And I also could not connect the dots to realize that ACS was in reference to American Calibration Service. Of course, we ALL should know that ACS has cutting edge, disruptive technology that is currently setting the biotech world on fire. So, I guess that make me...

Genius II

This is all very interesting.

This is all very interesting. By reading this blog you would think that Applied Calibration Services had "secrets" they wanted to hide. Does not sound like a company anyone would want to do business with!

You are both correct. The

You are both correct. The original plan was to relocate to North Korea, but then Mr. Overton got a look at Kim Ill Junk's [sic] latest haircut and just couldn't live in a country with such terrible hair stylists. Hence, plans were changed, and he took Moscow as his second choice. Be sure to tune into the 11 o'clock news for the latest selfies.

The previous post is an

The previous post is an example of completely incorrect information. There is documented proof that Overton is living in Russia in a gay relationship with Edward Snowden. Within the next month or so, they will both change their surname to Oversnow which will be very appropriate for their new Moscow location.

(Psst: Don't let Vlady Putin know or he will set the anti-gay crowds against both of them).

May the false be with you.

"Good luck Overton with all

"Good luck Overton with all your top secret calibration techniques to tell to the enemy. LMFAO!!!!"

I hear he has defected to North Korea.

Spelling is not, nor has

Spelling is not, nor has never been, either a requirement or feature of this site. Spelling seems to be a lost art/talent; even on professional level resumes where candidates are too lazy to even use a spell checker.

You have also not considered the possibility of a legal department that operates in a committee-like manner and refers to itself as a legal council.

Either way, many companies monitor this site and this is often done by the legal department, attorneys, lawyers, counsel, or barristers (not to be confused with baristas). While this is an open and unregulated site, judicious people should be aware that what they post is not necessarily anonymous or insulated from detection.

A member of such a legal

A member of such a legal department is not going to use the word "council" to refer to an attorney. It's counsel. So- yeah right.

Thank you, oh wise one, who

Thank you, oh wise one, who can't recognize that there could be more than one organization with the initials ACS. We appreciate the clarification, but see no reason for the insult. The insult says far more about you than us.

---- The Genius

For the Genius out there who

For the Genius out there who can't connect the dots. Applied Calibration Services (ACS). Good luck Overton with all your top secret calibration techniques to tell to the enemy. LMFAO!!!!

Don't laugh too hard. I know

Don't laugh too hard. I know of more than one legal department that monitors this site. In some cases, they have had this site blocked at the workplace. This should not surprise anyone given the open and unregulated nature of this site (as it should be) and the amount of proprietary information known to its posters. In fact, it would be almost irresponsible for companies to ignore this site. Just read some of the more 'harmful' posts here and you will understand this particular post.

(For what it's worth, I am not associated with ACS to my knowledge since I am not even sure whether ACS means the American Chemical Society or some other organization. My remarks are meant to be generic.)

Legal "council"? Yeah,

Legal "council"? Yeah, right....

Is there any evidence yet

Is there any evidence yet that Mr. Overton even visits the Rumour Mill? This almost sounds like a shotgun warning to any and all outlets for whatever they fear Mr. Overton might disclose or say.

by the way, what is ACS? I

by the way, what is ACS? I need to know, since I will personally ensure that my company is not doing business with you.

Mr. Overton, have any

Mr. Overton, have any comments?

Fascinating. Makes one

Fascinating. Makes one wonder what ACS and their lawyers are so worried about. Can you say: Paranoia?

Free speech would not, for

Free speech would not, for instance, cover revealing corporate proprietary information or, even worse, selling it. Free speech is also not a license to publish lies about others. So, yes, despite what you may think it says in the Bill of Rights, there are limitations to free speech. Free speech would also allow for a warning to others not to do certain things, such as posting here.

Hmm... Not to interject, but

Hmm... Not to interject, but the ACLU would have a problem with the restriction on free speech you are imposing?
