I use to hate gossip till I realized that I was getting potentially useful intelligence out of people that I could use to my advantage if it turned out to be correct. I know it sounds diabolical, but I’d used it to my advantage, if I could authenticate it to some degree. Better yet, I would sometimes gossip false rumors that I knew were getting sent back to my adversaries in college just to mess with them. Maybe I read Sun Tsu’s Art of War a little too much back in college.
