But I think the point that was trying to be made (not so eloquently) is that in your position you would be the last to know what is going on. That’s not an insult or anything, just the fact of the matter.
None of the other 8 rules were broken in any post I made, and have been threatened with having my posting privileges revoked (Oh please for the love of God, don't take away my ability to post on the officials! I need the censure! I am an enemy of the state! Not since Cheny have I seen people so power-mad).1. Simutronics has the right to remove any message it deems objectionable or that is not in Simutronics' best interest.
The facts of the layoffs has been very well corroborated. The story is the same in every source I've had which include direct communication via e-mail with on-site Simu staff, conversations with plenty of off-site GMs via e-mail and forum postings on 4 websites including the official message boards.
Just about the only specific data I don't have is the actual number laid off, the actual number still there and the employee breakdown per department. I do have a very accurate % of laid off employees and from which departments, and a rough but decent estimate of the total number of people being paid to work on HJ (and that one of them is fairly bitter about the whole situation).
All of this data was gathered by my tenacious and very annoying 'the sky is falling' strategy. I got what I wanted, and I am very satisfied with what I uncovered. I've had 5 hidden messages on the officials, all for breaking the very real #1 policy on the officials

Doesn't sound like to you that they're over-compensating?
Yes, the economy sucks, and as far as I can tell Simu is doing a piss poor job of handling their business. Without fixing the problems on the business end, whatever they may be, HJ cannot be released. But until they stop its development for good, and everyone who devoted their time on it thus far is forced to stop working on it, HJ can't really be considered dead.
