    I’d stay out of it.

    I don’t believe in work gossip, personal attacks, bashing…anything like that. Maybe because I work with an office full of professional older men and they are work driven. And that’s the type of environment I’m in. It’s all “work, work, work”. If you cant talk about work, then they don’t want to talk.  Just from working in this type of environment for so long, I believe that work should be work and personal lives should stay at home….which includes gossip about other people.  All that leads to harassment and personal attacks.  But that’s JMO, from the type of professional job/enviornment I am in.
