This is a "how to" site, not a "why I hate this product/company" site


We do remove a persons right to post - usually called "banning" at most sites
But here the title does not change to "banned" or Moved on" or anything else

I just joined and this was the first thread I read and I was blown away. This a great moderation and great that you guys push towards the questions and answers in How To vs the complaints. Anyways, glad to be here and hope I can throw up some good input here and there!

If I had a Great Deal on a product for Electricians would it be ok to talk about it?

Firstly, let me thank both Nathan and KCTermite for their insightful comments.

When I first came here, it was never with the intent of badmouthing any product or company. I have found some truly knowledgeable people on this site, and to my memory I have not heard any of them issue any such complaints.

As an experienced builder, I try to make my posts useful in some way so that the new DIY person may find something of value.

Certainly a lot of the posters joke around, and I'm guilty of that too. But the ones who have been around awhile and are active on the site seem to be here for all the right reasons.

I appreciate that very much. And for as long as I have been in the game, there are still a few thousand things I don't know and would like to learn. And as far as I'm concerned, this is the best site to do that on.

So, again my thanks go out - particularly to Nathan - for putting up with all of us. Thanks Nathan.

Since I came upon this site I have been educated, amused, and hopefully helpful to others. Fortunately I have not been here long enough to encounter the type of postings that are "product bashing" to the point they were intelligently expressed. Were I to see such posts, and actually feel it warranted a response, I would feel obligated to know everything possible about the proper use of the product before responding. Sometimes its not necessarily the horse, it could just be the handler.

I am new to this site and I agree with Nathan. There is a site called ScrewedByForums. It is consumer reports & complaints about scams etc. It is a very good site to vent on if one feels the need to do so. It also gives some insite for others on how a Company may treat a customer or a bad product. Then we can make our own decisions. Have a great day and thanks for this site.

Right on Nathan. There have been at least a couple recent new members that came here for no reason other to have a soapbox from which they can spew their negative comments and agenda. If someone has an axe to grind over a product or company there's little chance that they'll have an objective viewpoint to offer anyone.

I am new to this site, my brother told me to check it out. It is very informative, It great to converse over a gamut of knowledge. Sometimes it reminds me of a evening with a few of my family members sitting around a hoisted engine.

Seeing that this is actually a "Sticky", and not really a "discussion" thread, It is being closed to any further related & unrelated posts, as such are not really necessary to the Topic.

If any members would like to discuss any points (questions, discussions, concerns, etc.) related to this Sticky's Topic,
please feel free to post them here: http://www.diychatroom.com/f36/ - OR - send a PM to one of the Site Moderators.
