The customer has absolutely no obligation to the merchant. Why do some merchants feel otherwise? That is a rhetorical question. There is no defensible reason a merchant should order a customer to contact them prior to leaving a review, let alone break TOS and harass them for leaving a review.

We then decide to make a negative review of that product. However, on occasions some of us have received abusive IMs from that vendor over the review. Perhaps I am being naive, but surely it is the vendor's responsibility to either assist the customer or make an effort to improve their product rather than attack the customer. In other words... After Sales Service! Yes. I could not agree with you more. I recall this

  6. I know that Ceka and my reply was to the topic not to you as such. This (ETA: what you said about only replying to something in the actual post you replied to, not the topic) was made more clear in the other thread when you said you had not actually read the whole topic, only skimmed it. What I was really saying is why I did not focus on those happy times. I wasn't implying anything about your own posts. (ETA I will say though that a positive reply to someone who is saying all kinds of smack to someone else would imply 'siding with' to the casual reader. Knowing your post history as I do,
  7. Except that wasn't how they said it. (That's actually what I was saying though; which of course was ignored since I somehow becasme the villain of the piece. I said 'yes it's wonderful when that happens but there's no reason they SHOULD - SHOULD - go through all of that first.' In an attempt to understand just how much they expect a customer to go through before being allowed to post a review - and that's really the correct word if what they expect is this delay - I asked "how long?" I never got a real answer on that - not a direct one. A partial one.) The customer you find "Duh" is probably
  8. I have to remind myself to do that with any thread one or two people are posting in. Can't blame you Ceka. There was a LOT of tension in that topic. I tried joking at one point that it was ironic that some merchants were harassing people for even mentioning the customer right to a review. Completely ignored. I have to learn that when I'm being talked AT and not TO, it's time to go.

No, no customer is ever "obligated" to do so, but the squeaky wheel gets greased, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, etc., etc., etc. And yet I never said I wrote a 'scathing' review - I was replying to someone's post about being harassed for writing a barely even tepid review. (That's what the topic was actually about - is it wrong when a merchant h
  10. Thanks for the feedback on the 'does the customer have a right to review' issue. No offense but if skimming a thread a lot of the subtlety would be lost, including subtext. (My posts were long as were some other people's, to be fair; just saying: I was trying to be helpful, my points were being ignored though and the others' opinions hammered repeatedly, trying to drown anyone else's out. Was I repeating mine in reply? Yep. But also trying to continue discussion in a meaningful sense.) As for Dres your reaction is as valid as mine is to anything either of us have read. As for my 'ganging up
  11. I've met some wonderful creators too in the past through buying their products, but didn't feel those stories were pertinent to the topic (and neither was my personal life nor job history.)
  12. Thank God someone finally posted a logical response from the merchant's perspective. I made several what I thought were salient points and helpful suggestions including a suggestion box or adding something in their product page and what I got was a bunch of emotional jibber jabber in response, followed by "you're stalking me." When someone clearly does not reply to any actual points made or questions posed and yet demands a response to their own highly inappropriate question it's time to pull the plug, which I should have done rather than keep trying to steer things back to sanity. I appr

And now I am putting you on ignore. First of all - you won't be missed. Second - that wasn't the way it was phrased. Third - a discussion in an open public forum is not 'stalking.' Get over yourself, take a chill pill, and stop the hysterical retorts. If putting me on ignore is what it took to get you to stop the passive aggressive jabs followed by "who me?" then I am thrilled with that.

Well, Second Life was not really designed with 'sidewalks' or throughways, unless you count Linden roads and water ways and Linden owned land.

They own everything on, under and above that parcel. part 2: People make a mistake in my opinion, in the forums, making too many 'real life' analogies.
