Layoffs are terrible and very disruptive. Those affected will always feel singled out, scared and upset. That is incredibly natural. It's not fun for anyone: those receiving the news, those giving the news, and those left behind. Reactions such as these posts are just ways to blow off the stress and everyone totally understands that. This company did what it needed to do in it's opinion and gave a very soft exit ramp. Those who don't agree with that haven't experienced other companies and other layoffs.
