Comments/Reviews/ Whatever
Sunday, May 28, 2006

So I don't have to preface every comment I make with - its my opinion and not meant to offend - I'm posting this here for anyone, and everyone, to read.

When someone posts their work on a public forum that allows for comments, that author/designer needs to understand that they aren't always going to get responses that they want to hear.

I'm a pretty blunt person. If I'm going to take the time to comment on something, I'm going to give my opinion and it may not always be praise.

If I see something I disagree with, (and its usually characterization or spelling/punctuation) I'm damn well going to mention it. You don't have to agree with me, (and really I do love to debate subjects but not until there is nothing of the original topic left but bad and hurt feelings on one or both sides) but conversely you don't have the right to tell me my opinion doesn't matter.

I always attempt to make sure my comments are made it in a polite way. It's possible to fail in that due to the unemotional nature of reading simple text on a screen.

What I truly detest is when I, or someone else, makes a comment and then is sent a private message being attacked and flamed for that comment. Ever think you took that comment wrong? No. Probably not.

Some wonder why people leave anonymous reviews. Huh. Perhaps those who want to shove their opinion rudely down someone's throat and who cowardly flame in private and kiss ass in public ought to re-think what they're doing.

I like reviews, whether they are good or bad. It doesn't matter so long as they are constructive. I want people to point out if they think something is out of character. I may not agree, or I might. Maybe the reader can point out something I missed or didn't think of.

Hear hear, Leiasky! Gotta give those who would abuse the tradition and purpose of forums a right good kick in the metaphsyical pigu;)

Well said. That's in a polite way.

Stupid soulless text.
