I've seen it happen once. Sort of. 

Right now I've got a work in progress that would definitely cause me some work trouble. It's about my work, specifically. Nothing illegal or threatening, but it's not kind to the workplace.

Anyone out there done something like this?

Every day. I tell stories about people that I run into every day, and that means I don't paint them in the best light. If they wanted better lighting, they should have acted better. Or at least realized someone with poor lighting was near.

Yes.  Every other day on facebook.  That's why I don't have my employer listed on my (facebook) profile.

I have some major concerns around the current climate of "purity politics" and "call out culture".  Where you could say/write something either well intended or in jest, and because it doesn't meet someone elses particular moral world view, you wind up being the victim of an online witch burning.

Anyone experienced the consequences? What were they?

For me I was pulled into a meeting and asked to remove my employers name from my facebook profile.  Fortunitely I have a good employer, who didn't want to stop me from expressing free speech.

That is fortunate. And sad. Fortunate it worked out that way, sad that it's definitely "fortunate" that we live in a world where it's fortunate that an employer is cool with you expressing yourself on your own time.
