You think it speaks ill of people when they are demotivated by
people saying nasty things about them, or ascribing horrible motives to
them? Amazing. Me, I would be liable to just break out some beer and
watch some movies rather than go online and read the negative things
people have been saying, were I in Ganeff's shoes.
When will people learn that abusing people, whether they have a
role relationship or not, turns them off and makes them less likely to
be enthusiastic and engaged? Forgotten the bit about honey and vinegar?
