However, the post did not mention these additional facts. If I knew all the
facts, my reply would have been different. If the company was OK with it,
fine. It sounded to me like they stopped taking their job seriously when they
found out they were doomed.

I stand by my comment: If you learn your job is on the way out, it is morally
wrong to use the work day to find work. You are still on their dime and you
can/they can use their off time to search.

I guess I am alone in my opiion of what is right and wrong..
