Warning: Don't try to gracefully leave a Jason Calcanis co.

Interesting thread at techcrunch.com on how a developer emailed his boss --Jason Calcanis at mahalo-- to give his two weeks notice and embark upon a new venture. He was very effusive in his thanks to Calcanis and others on the management team/co-workers.

Calcanis' response: Drop dead. (essentially, anyway)

Some commenters are saying the employee should have handled this face to face vs. email, but considering how Calcanis responded (link below), the employee probably saved himself an angry in-person confrontation and a perp walk to the front door by security.

What do you think?
