Whew! I don't know about all of that.

Here's my two cents:

I find no difference to speak of between a and b. The only other thing I'd like to mention is that it can be considered redundant to say "from your job." Unless otherwise indicated, when somebody resigns, it means he's decided to leave his job, so I think the sentence should simply be

The rumor of/about your resignation is shocking.

As for 1 and 2, 1 works fine, but I don't think 2 works without something connecting problem to where.

One note: Please let's be careful with capitalization and punctuation. You've got a capital t in be that should be lower case, and both 1 and 2 should begin with a capital t. Thanks. Smile
