Thread regarding GlobalFoundries layoffs

What happened to that post?

What happened to the post that stated Samsung was about to seal the deal but the Vermont fab is a sticking point ?

Why was it removed?

This site is monitored closely. Truthful posts about the validated s-xual harassment claims from employees about the BTV GM have been deleted almost as fast as the actual claim itself was swept under the rug.

I think kzh probably meant the original Samsung poster was obvious trolling. Why would Samsung want to buy any old fab, and yes, Malta is old tech, from GF? I mean some of it could make sense if you ignore the fact that Samsung builds their own cookie-cutter fabs. Samsung is focused on 7nm, and they would probably be better off building a fab out west as opposed to one that comes with Malta's insanely high operating expenses and excessive management.

@khz is somewhat right, this site is administered and there are TOS to be followed.
Two basic things that aren’t allowed here: use of real names/personal info and offensive language. That includes threats, personal insults, too much swearing and derogatory speech in general. Admins also don’t like off-topics like political threads that lead to nowhere.
But I don’t think posts here get deleted based on truthfulness, otherwise it wouldn’t be a called a rumor site. Unless, of course, web admins determine you are a troll doing this on purpose. Think we’ve all seen posts like that disappearing, hope they are blocking those users as well.

90% of the posts here and on TheLayoff in general have no truth to them. Also there are multiple posts still there regarding Samsung sale. Why are those still around? Makes me think there may be some truth to the ones that SOMEONE has asked to be removed. As far as VT, why would Samsing want a 40 year old 200mm fab that has such a huge headcount and no room to expand? Malta and Dresden make more sense for Samsung's foundry ambitions.

Probably violates TOS due to little truth behind it? Last I heard Samsung didn't want Malta, but wanted VT. Wonder what the rumor will be next time? Dresden and VT, but not Malta? Malta and Dresden, but no VT?
