Have you ever been alone with either boat or dingy? Have you ever boarded either boat or dingy? Did two ships ever pass in the night? or day for that matter? If you answer in the affirmative maybe its best to be the "bigger ship", as hard as that might be for a phkynlawyer.

If your answer to the above is negative and both boat and dingy are as sneaky and backstabbing as they have proven themselves to be, maybe they will conspire to sink your ship!! Think about the consequences of your actions before you act. My advice: let it go. If they both continue on this path they will sink on their own.
its damn hard but let it go...theyll sink themselves one day

I say let it go... let sleeping dogs lie. Women like that are the prime reason I don't have any in my life... they can put a spin on anything.... let them spin themselves into the ground. If you confront them... they will only deny it... then find a way to cause you more trouble... let it go... after all... THEY'RE WOMEN... IT'S EXPECTED. They are all harpies and nags.

This should answer your question. Take the high road. She was venting on a message board where, I am assuming, your real names were not used so no real harm was done. So she didn't like you or your wife, BFD. You're not in business to make friends with your employees. I try to treat my employees fairly and want them to be happy (thinking they will work harder) but you can't please everyone. It's part of doing business. Starting a war won't get you anywhere. Consider the source and laugh it off. Just my .02.

If anything, i would make damn sure i made an appearance on her bulletin board right before she left. Use a name that would have her think it might be you, but not sure enough to bring it up. Talk about being uncomfortable.

Join the message board as a hurricane and sink the boat and dingy
Actually might be best not to do anything, but if you must, maybe Wifey should join the message board as Witchy, and then have some fun with them online. Also boats new employer might not like her on a message board during company time, give boat time to start being on the message board then a heads up to the new boss might be in order. Better to get boat sunk from new job than from a job she's leaving anyhow.

People need to vent, some people do it because there is a valid reason. Others do it because they need to feel important. In my mind Boat is calling wifey witch because boat is annoyed that you never wanted to take her for a ride.

If you are cozy with the new boss then give him a copy of the message forum and ask if he needs someone of that character in his office.

Letting it rest is probably best, boat will probably go to no end to screw you over. It is interesting she is working hard for you though. If she is talking **** then why is sher making an effort to help you out.

Baja, well written. Of course you are correct and that is the proper way to handle things. It's the fantasy of exacting revenge that is allowing me to deal with her for the next few days. Its is truly surreal to read her vitriol and then see how hard she is working and how kind she is being to me. Either she is the best actress ever or she is the loser I believe that she is, trying to elicit sympathy from her group of friends that frequent the site where she posted.
