I don't quite get the "scrum got u down?" question.

Is it implying that scrum is old-hat and to find a new job using insert new methodology here?

Or is it implying that the usual scrum meetings might remind you how rubbish your current company is because of what comes up in the meetings?

Well, "Are waterfall methodologies crushing your potential as a programmer?" doesn't quite have the same ring to it ;) I'd assume the choice of the word in question wasn't exactly for the merits or shortfalls of the methodology it stands for. –  Piskvor Oct 27 '10 at 11:42
    
@Piskvor - but scrum isn't waterfall, so asking if scrum has got me down is just... confusing! I thought scrum was still fashionable! It might make sense if it said: "waterfall got you down?" –  joshcomley Oct 27 '10 at 12:12

Yup, it very much isn't - I believe they chose "scrum got you down" just for the way it sounds, not for making sense. (and the ad worked - just look at us, we're discussing it! ;)) –  Piskvor Oct 27 '10 at 12:39
    
I found this page because I was wondering the same thing, Josh! The advert clearly implies that Scrum has the ability to "get you down" to the extent that you search for a new job, presumably at a non-agile company. Anyone considering espousing Scrum might be put off by this assertion. –  James McCormack Dec 8 '10 at 10:51
