If you are a frequent reader of this blog, you have likely seen comments from a person who uses the nickname “Raider.” The comments are sometimes critical of me or companies in this business, and they are occasionally biting, but I appreciate the fact that Raider posts her opinions. Most importantly though, I respect what she has to say, and I don’t believe she is trying to be hurtful when she comments.
It should go without saying, but I sincerely appreciate it when you share your insight and feedback related to articles that I publish. I learn from what you share just as much as people learn from what I share. I don’t think this blog would be as interesting as it is without the comments that readers leave and share, and I want to make sure you understand that.
I don’t always respond to comments in a friendly manner, especially when they are condescending, rude, or downright unprofessional. Even when feedback isn’t positive, I appreciate the people who take the time to share their feedback. I also don’t generally censor comments that are made (unless there are mitigating reasons that are at my discretion).
Although Raider and I don’t always agree (and we often disagree), I appreciate that she feels that it is okay to disagree with the publisher without fear of banishment, personal attacks, or comment deletion. I hope you feel the same way.
