I write a lot of posts that I get paid for. It used to be, when you had a problem, you could write to the company, privately, and get the answers you were looking for. I am not sure why, but a few months ago, they decided that all problems, questions, feedback, or whatever should be posted in an open forum, so that other bloggers could offer their two cents.
The problem I have noticed, though, is that some of these bloggers are just mean. I am sure that they think they are offering constructive criticism, but sometimes it just comes out as condescending. There was one instance when someone posted a question, and specifically asked that only a staff member answer. That didn't stop certain others bloggers from offering up some advice. In the end, it was something that only a staff member could fix, so why do others chime in?
It drives me crazy!
I am all for helping out other bloggers, but seriously guys, there is a nice way to do it.
