why all the propaganda? like the fear mongers on fox news. we have families to support out here and dont need your conspiracy bull making us worry! if you have some facts about any gates lay off then go ahead and reply, otherwise keep your bull to yourself- shazzam.

hats off to the person who posted it at gates. that way all employees will know that there is rumors going around while you all continue working overtime and pulling the weight for people like the rumor starter. maybe that person can spare some time to give you all a break from the hard labor you do.

I come closer to believing that than the first post from shazzam. If you believe that, I would be watchful of others taking advantage of you.

Furthermore, if someone posted this at your place of work, they had one intention, to cause damage and to be disruptive. Did that really happen?

I want everyone to know that if Gates shuts down or is sold, we should all look at this as a positive.

Check your facts before you open your mouth. No evidence can be found to substantiate your allegations.

Topix Forum is not a reliable source for information. One should take any post with a grain of salt.

Topix Forum is akin to talking across the back yard fence.

It is foolish to spread rumors the way you have, apparently to instigate or inflame.

By the way, it's got nothing to do with being from Westville. It has a lot to do with being an ignorant internet troll.

If you read Topix regularly, you will discover that it's prudent to overlook and ignore most posts of this type. You can't eliminate anonymous posters and complaining is fuel for the fire. Besides, freedom of speech requires tolerance of fools at times.

Its kinda hard to check the facts when everyone that knows anything in this plant will lie to your face.

to manager: how do you figure that Gates closing it's doors would be a positive thing?

Any transaction that large would need approval by the securities and exchange commission. Also, The Wall Street Journal covers all business dealings as large as this one would be.

As far as checking with management at the work place; well, forget it. The first line on their job description is probably: "Protect the company's assets or lose your job". They ain't talkin'.

I did a limited search and couldn't find anything except for the old news about the first sale of Gates to Tomkins in 1996. I think the key words "Dayco acquires Gates" would be at the top of the page, but it wasn't there at all. Don't think it's happenin'. Rumors are ugly and usually way off the mark if there is any truth to them at all.
