I'm not following... what do you mean by "a meeting where there's no specific goals"?
It's an inaccurate depiction of a sense of feeling that people around you are talking about something you don't know. Since you don't really know, you couldn't determine what specific goals they are talking about. Henceforth.
Why is this not under general programming?
I thought the Lounge is a bit more fitting to this. Can't say why not...
