Re: i saved your post WST before you deleted it. Its better to be honest then to pretend. Havent longs on this board done that for a long enough time already?
Mabel- My point there was that relying on management has been a fools errand. Red is well intentioned but talking to management gives one a point of view that all is well while the reality may be different. I deleted the original post because it was supposed to be a PM. Someone asked me about Red and I gave an honest opinion. He is a good guy but suffers from the cardinal sin that I labored under for 4 years- we somehow think limited access to management provides insight. It doesn't. Re" critical thinking was in reference to the info provided, not Redwood. My point was anything he is getting from management is thru a distorted lens. Those providing the info cannot be critically detached.
HOPE that helps.
