    Yes, the flip-side of networking is that bad people in your network can harm you, just as good people in your network can help you.  I've experienced some of that as well.  To some extent that's a lesson (too late, obviously) in whom not to ask for help, and how not to handle a personal dispute with a boss.  But to some extent it's the unavoidable friction of life that can and does happen to any of us at times.

    Ironically, that points back to the importance of networking, as those with broader connections are less likely to be ostracized by the actions of one or two "snakes in the grass."  The fewer your network connections, the more vulnerable you are with each.
