OK, things are getting back to normal.--NOT!

It's been 24 hours since you laid off 115 people. The media have been told. The affected have been told. The web has been told. Not quite an exaggeration to say the world has been told.

How about a official or explanatory statement to the community--just the community--the community you claim to vaunt above all else?

There is so much processing to do for all parties that anything that even breathes the word "layoff" on the boards gets wildly recced. Without explanation or some kind of statement, these posts are like so many empty hatracks on which to hang weary Foolscaps. I think the community wants some expression of compassion and concern, or at least an economic explanation, from the people doing the hacking. I know your budget is tight, but your common sense shouldn't be.

This is the Internet, where things are wide open, maverick, etc. It ain't supposed to be Pravda.

Say something, dammit.
