The people we lost today were talented, kind, dedicated, and good humans to be around. This wasn't something that we wanted to do, but something these market conditions forced us to do. I'm hopeful in better times we can bring back our friends, family, and coworkers. We're grateful for their service and proud of their work. Many blessings of peace as we all go through this crunch and here's to better days on the other side of it.

  1. They didn't die. This kind of phrasing is usually used for people dying in a tragic event, not the results of an economic downturn leading to cutting staff.
  2. They weren't "lost". They were fired. It sounds like it was necessary, but clothing it in passive verbiage doesn't help.
  3. I don't love it when companies call employees family (unless there were actual related people on the staff, which might be the case). Relations might be friendly, but employment is a business transaction first and foremost.

at the end the best stay. Makes all better. Like the same happens in tech the last months too.

This is kind of a shitty attitude towards people who just got fired. In listening to the town hall, it was more around who was bringing in dollars to the company. E.g. support largely were so good at their job they cleared all the queue and so weren't needed anymore. They were some of the best, but they no longer made financial sense to keep on the payroll. Doesn't mean they weren't the best at what they did.

Sounds shitty, because it's a shitty topic.

At the end all companies in tech fire people. So workforce becomes cheaper = good for the business.

Sure it sounds like an asshole attitude, but it is the truth and got for asset holders.

I understand the need to fire people in tough times, but saying it's because they weren't the best is what I'm taking umbrage with. They were very good at those jobs. It was just decided those jobs weren't worth the cost to the company at this time. But saying it's because they weren't the best is a bit of a slap in the face to all the great work they put in, even if it was for the best from the company's perspective.

It's not a moral point. The logic is, you don't fire the people you really need. That's it.

Maybe splinterlands fire random people. But normally you fire the people that are not the best.

It really sucks, it's ok to be bummed for a while, even as we know the future is bright. While tech moguls destroy value, we stand ready to replace it!

Are you getting pumped hard? I'm glad you are so fucking pumped that the "bear" is dead.
Look at all these "kind, dedicated and good humans" that you are around. Are you proud of all of them, you fat fucking pig filthy mother fucker. I bet you are so fucking proud of the way you all colluded to harass, block, intimidate, silence and bully someone into their grave. And then you all repeated the exact same filthy tactics with me, to make sure your crimes are kept under wraps. Does that news make you proud you fucking dog. That is the only dead thing you should all be proud of. Im sure you will all be celebrating like the filthy pigs that you all are.

Go and fucking choke your fraudster mother fucker. You and all the filthy dogs who were all part of this disgusting behaviour that you have no fucking shame about, and never will.

The only thing you are proud of, is protecting all the thieves, cheating fraudsters in your insider circles that you collude with to make sure that your crimes are covered up.

You are a fucking criminal and an animal with no fucking remorse for anything you all did to destroy my brothers life.
