Re: How many will now leave anyway.... and miss out on redundancy?

I'm not sure whether that indicates malice or incompetence on the part of IBM management.

My guess is that now the dust has settled they've discovered that the volunteers they have so far are mostly the good guys they want to keep, and there isn''t enough of the "dead weight" in the list to let HR choose only them. They're extending the deadline in the hope that enough additional losers will sign up. But then I'm a cynic, too.
