Returning here after a long time-catching up on issues such as this.
The disappointment I feel is great-for reasons others said better than I could.This reminded me exactly of the congregational type 'hype' regarding the coming of more 'new-light'.
The degree of importance-coming thru the filter of newly 'left the org' individuals does not correspond with how the 'real(neverbeenadub) perceives such issues.
The "I know something you don't know' hinting and waiting game was in itself cruel and juvenile. But can't truly fault the individual as they haven't spent much time acclimated to the 'real world' and it's thinking. The build-up and hype here proves that no matter one's previous position in the org. it will take some time or better yet some exit counseling to learn how to reconcile realistic expectations with jdub definitions and behaviors.
