If I hadn't commented already I'd mod you up. I think those dismissing this out of hand have never experienced it. Extreme stress and a loss of self esteem can make things seem much darker and choices much more limited. I imagine that suffering that when you think you've just reached the pinnacle of your career would only make it seem worse.

There's also a magnitude of difference between a toxic work environment and "I go home exhausted, work frequently out of town. Work long hours for no extra money." as the original poster put it. I've done the latter and even enjoyed it but I've also stuck a toxic work environment for years past the point I should have left and ended up suffering from serious stress and depression (not sleeping, panic attacks if my phone rang out of hours, depressed on a Saturday night because I can sense Monday approaching). You can also feel that its your own fault, particularly if others seem to cope and especially if there's bullying involved.

I can't really judge this case from a short summary, but people poo-pooing the idea have just never experienced it.

Oh man, can we do that? I never knew. Can you add any group into any group or are there limits? I mean, when I talk about Mexicans can I include the Dutch or is it just political groupings? Can we mix groupings? When I say libertarians can I include the khmer rouge, smurfs and the beaker people of ancient Europe.

This is an awesome development and will really save a lot of time and effort. You sir, are a genius.
