I’m not arguing minutiae - you completely walked back your original comment and now switched to ad hominem attacks with no basis whatsoever. I’m not taking anything out on the person. Just thought this could be a place where we commiserate over the times when good work is stalled by inexperienced leadership. Sorry if this somehow was triggering for you.

Seems like the intent of the original post was to vent with no request of a response other than maybe, “been there, cheer up, this too shall pass,” and folks just piled on.

I wouldn’t post on here unless I were looking for responses, and if I needed a response, I would be specific as to what kind/topic.

I would also just move along if I saw a vent post and not jump to pass judgment on the OP whom/whose situation I don’t fully understand.

Spot on, and thank you for being so diplomatic. I agree - don’t normally post in this bowl but it had seemed like others post similar vents so it’s a lesson learned. Don’t really see a delete button but I dusted off my shoulders and moved on.

That’s tough
