They don't allow companies to come on this site and self promote but I do believe that companies have the right to respond to claims about their products. I think it's only fair. The problem is when it turns into a never ending cycle. The pissed off customer posts, the company responds, the customer responds... and around we go. Somehow we need to let people make a comment, let a company respond and then either agree to disagree or let the company help fix the problem.

It can only be fair to let a company respond. Although sometimes its hard to judge if the complaint/response is genuine.

I enjoy the forum and always gain new knowledge and insights about topics that are new to me, and even to topics of which I am knowledgeable.

As a newbie, I am often surprised by critical or sarcastic comments in response to someone who has attempted to post a helpful answer to another poster's question.

So, not only should we not slam other products, perhaps we should not slam other well-intentioned forum members. Or will I have a different opinion about this after I have posted 2000 comments and have gained more insight about the forum

nearlycivil, is there a problem with resurrecting an old thread? Especially when you see several threads with the same topic when you are searching? Just asking, not trying to get One of the major reading exercises here, for me anyway, is to glean information about specific products before I hand over my life savings.

Re: This is a how to site, not a why I hate this product site

Good comments and bad comments, i think still good because it gives members different ideas or perspectives in a certain topics and some can be a useful comments too to others regardless if it is a negative or positive comment. Just saying.. =)
