I don't understand... how is it that this company can be growing so rapidly and in such solid avenues and have to lay off so many people? Were the Fool publicly held, I'd seriously want to see their numbers.The UK and Japan sites aren't even a year old and there -has- to be a need for new texts addressing the unique markets and vehicles those cultures abide in. And that's just the overseas stuff... the tax laws are changing here. Who will interpret them at the Fool? Am I totally off my nut? Did they really have three people filling the coffee pot and need to cut back so seemingly deep?There's just got to be a reason... and I know Chorizo's argument but I can't see it all stemming from there.- ScoMy deepest sympathy to you, Kelly. Please let it not have touched anyone else.
