It is a small world, to be sure, but in addition, what I say and how I
say it reflects on *me*. Just by bad-mouthing somebody else, I bring
*myself* down! I'd rather take a more positive attitude, or if I can't,
try to change my circumstances.

Subject: RE: I Can Really Pick 'Em, Can't I?
I agree Joe. The last two times I left a job that had become miserable
and toxic, it was to move to one that was big improvement. But then
things can always change. Just getting a new manager can have a huge
impact on you and your job, even if nothing else changes.
I also agree about bad mouthing a previous employer. Tech communities
can often be "small worlds" and you don't want anything coming back to
bite you in the future. Always consider how your actions might impact
your reputation in the community.
