* Gossip is defined as unconstrained conversation or speculation that is negative in nature, designed to vent, or garner personal support rather than following proper protocol that occurs between any colleagues or members of the Arma Dei community not involved in a situation. Gossip creates overall unrest, concern, and is unhealthy for the community as a whole.
