In the grand scheme of things does it matter? That past is the past. We can't change it. Worry about promises from yesterday is sort of like that first girlfriend you said "I love to." There's a good bet you didn't marry her, so it really had no long-term meaning.
IMO, the people on this forum spend too much time dwelling on the past. It's like everyone here is a history professor. We have to live in the real world, and in the real world many things we are told, tell others, and aspire to achieve just don't pan out.
I agree with this. We need a blank slate. forget EVERYTHING that we were told. It was under a different management, under different EP and is becoming clear what was said was the most optimistic of viewpoints.
