This whole sitch reminds me of my first job and the company I worked for. That was the awesomest company ever with a president who was genuinely cool, caring, loved working with people and was a big, happy ball of energy. REALLY unlike anything you typically see in the corporate world.

One bad decision to be bought by one of a few companies who had made a bid ground the company into the dirt and beyond. This was your standard dot-com before the bubble burst, buying out companies like a kid with their first credit card, never thinking that real money had to manifest in order to actually deal with the purchase--and mismanaging them right and left because they had no clue what they bought.

It was awful. I felt so bad for the guy, mourned for the company... and left it for another company in the area when I could.

Diff sitch, yeah, but definitely a case of where "Squee! Someone who looks cool on paper wants to buy us!" turns into a terrible business lesson for the owners.
