I made a post entitled 'What do you do for a living?' where I explained what I did for a living and asked what others did for a living.
I admit I mentioned my company name, but in all truth if my living is working for a certain company, then surely it is no problem mentioning the company name.
I apologised and edited the post to remove the company name, then a rant post was added by 'valerie' accusing me of leaving links/contact details that were not even there.
I responded to her rant, basically saying she is entitled to her opinion, but let me have mine too.
The response, another rant and the topic locked.
I understand forums need moderators, but when you do nothing wrong should they really be able to rant against you and lock a genuine topic?
Please post your issues below, and hopefully moderators will see where they are going wrong... ONE PERSON CAN NOT MADE A DECISION ON BEHALF OF MILLIONS OF MEMBERS!!!
So many views no replies, are people scared to reply ? Ok I read that other topic, I will give my opinion.
I don't think Valerie was targeting you necessarily, she wrote that for everyone to see, why links, contact info, etc are not allowed. //edit: Interesting, I checked the forum rules again, 12 points, and nowhere is it mentioned any specific rule against posting URLs, contact info, company names. Strange because I recall reading it somewhere before....I checked the SITE general user agreement and forum rules and could not find it unless I am very tired and losing my mind, I re-read and re-read it's not there. Nowhere, anywhere on the site is it said "you cannot write company names or post URLs" at least not anymore. Used to be there, can't recall where I seen it. Not in the rules, FAQ or TOS.
As far as your post I read it too and I can see that you were just asking a question, as a general topic, not meant to advertise nor promote any company. Your topic had good intentions.......I think there is a difference between promoting, posting contacts / links and mentioning company names. You were clearly not advertising or promoting anything.
So in all fairness, you had good intentions and meant no harm, and her explanations were valid and meant for everyone, although maybe the rules section should reflect this officially. there is a difference between mentioning a company name for the purpose of promoting/advertising or making vile accusations and simply as a general discussion. So anyhow. Might not be fair to label all CS staff that way, it is far better here than most other forums.
your intentions were good, and her intentions as well, no time to shake hands
