I realize this is a naive question for an anonymous forum, but couldn't we all be a bit more kind and respectful on this forum?
I've been reading through the posts today to understand what's happening, and I've been shocked with how mean spirited some of the posts have been. Luckily, some of the worst ones seem to have been removed, but the tone and content of many posts are just mean.
Everyone impacted by these layoffs is a fellow human being with their own stories, families, challenges, aspirations, strengths and imperfections.
This seems to be a good forum to learn about what's happening and prepare ourselves, but it's saddening to be reading through and then just smacked in the face with some of these mean-spirited posts.
