Quit, fired, the act of talking about the company/site

One thing I've noticed, and I'm guilty of doing this because I did in the past on a previous site that I worked for. But, one thing that I've learned, venting is good because it allows you to get your anger and frustrations out without worrying.
But, one thing that I don't get is when if you quit at your own free will, why try to tarnish a site's brand? Why not just go out like a true soldier and say "Fuck it, time to move in, and do better". That's what I did when I quit working for a certain pet site years ago. Sure, I vented, and attacked people who I thought were responsible for my firing, but I took it in stride.
I tried my best, and my best wasn't good enough for them, so venting was my way of telling people what happened - and really, its wrong because if you worked there for a while, its obvious you were happy for a while.
No this isn't directed at anyone, I'm speaking in general.
Like here's another incident - Wal mart used to have problems paying their employees[they might still do] and their employees did everything in their power to let everyone else know about the mistreatment - and it was a wake up for that company.
So, this, people quit, interests changes, things like that, but if a company/site was supporting you in everything that you were doing for them, why launch hate blogs, or hate threads about them? Why not keep moving forward, improve your self as a person, and improve your ability to get work done?
And here's another example. When I held down a job for an oil company, I was sick of doing all the repair work on the products, so I told my lead-man why don't you tell your friends to do it? That was my downfall I knew how to do it right, fast, and be reliable, but sending the work to them actually made me look bad with the upper management. I wasn't so sure it was a good decision on my part, so I left it alone, but I eventually lost in my mind on how to do repairs, so I went back to painting and power-washing the products.
That was my fault, but it was also my lead-man's fault for relying on me so much and exhausting me out.
So, what I'm trying to say here is when you work somewhere and you quit, keep on moving further. You got the chance to experience working there for a reason, and if someone mistreated you while working for them, that is their loss, not yours. Your pride will keep you going and more people will want to hire you based around your past experiences.
Experience runs a marathon in this world, and the more experience you have, the more chances you may have at working at bigger places.
So, if you have been mistreated in a work force before, how did you re-act? Did you fight them every chance you got, or did you continue on your own path and basically saying "Screw them" without any else[besides your friends, maybe?] hearing it?
And also, if you didn't want to do something for that job - did you tell one of your co-workers to do it for you?
In another note, if you didn't like working for them, why continue on? Passion is what you're born with, you can't really force your passion onto someone else. It's okay to disagree with a co-worker or two, but I don't really see how its okay to go lashing out publically[but if you do it, good for you, let me know how it works!]
So, let's talk about talking about the company and/or site you've worked for, how was it? When did things start going wrong? It's okay if you don't want to mention any names.
