How about a voting system enabling publicly-posted letters to have
their validity voted on? Might save a few flame wars. 5 for "Valid
Point" and 1 for "Shenanigans!"

Maybe the titles are too long. I don't know what it is, but just a

It seems like every day, around 6:30 am or so, my time (GMT -5) I
suddenly can't access the site anymore.
Is this a daily maintenance thing, or is the site just exceptionally
busy at that time?

Just curious.

I liked the original setup of Planet Feedback because it was easier to
write the letters and fix any mistakes made. With the new way you
have Planet Feedback setup, I hav very difficult time finding what I
need. This morning I wrote a letter and a mistake happened I think
and I had to email a letter to you guys to see if the mistake I had
made was actually made and to ask you to fix it for me if it was made.
The old Planet Feedback was easier for me because I could just hit
back and it would take me back to the previous page and I could fix my
own mistake. I really like your website and I hav used it a few times
and got results. I just think the new Planet Feedback is not client
friendly. Thanks guys for being here for us.

Thank you for dealing with the "Leaky Tampon" letter. While I believe
the letter writer was attempting to make fun of the "Happy Period"
letter and not at all serious, the replies full of name calling and
insults were absolutely out of line and totally uncalled for. Thank
you for taking care of it so quickly.

A comment was made by Greg that some things are taken as suggestions,
but deemed by the PFB Team as not good ideas, not possible, etc. I
know I have made some suggestions a few times because I have no clue
if someone read it before, because there were no comments to it with a
yes, no, maybe type of answer.

Could we either get PFB answers to all posts here?
Or maintain a link to a bullet point list of all suggestions with
their responses?

I am just trying to think of a better way to communicate to the
community what is "on the list" and what is not.

To get a "draft" mode? I don't know if it is something that could be
saved under our profiles, but I know it would seriously help me when I
start a letter and can't finish it until later.

Figured so long as you're making all these changes, I might as well
"strike while the iron is hot!"

by DragonflygrrlTheGreat Posted Sat January 20, 2007 @ 9:34 AM

As has been said numerous times, this is in fact a privately owned
site. The owners and administrators of this site can do pretty much
whatever they darned well please, and if we the members of the site
don't like it, we can, as has also been said numerous times, leave. I
understand that, and I also understand that sometimes we as members
don't need to know what the owners and administrators of the site are
doing.

But.

This is not the "Demands Box," or the "Vague Idle Threats Box." It is
the "Suggestion Box." That means that the content posted here by
members of the site is in fact a series of suggestions, and ought to
be taken as such. If feedback is not desired by the administrators of
the site, just take down the Suggestion Box. If members' opinions are
disagreed with, just say so, in an explanatory and non-combative
manner.

In the spirit in which I believe the Suggestion Box was begun, I have
some suggestions.

1. I suggest that an experiment on the effect of moderators in our
community must take longer than a week to be valid. In other words,
the perceived "failure" of the moderator system was a conclusion drawn
prematurely, without adequate data. I'm not saying moderators are or
are not the way to go. I'm not saying that the mods selected weren't
doing a good job (for the record I think they were). I'm saying that
naming some mods based on the results of a non-scientific poll of
users, giving some vague direction, and then yanking them before they
had a chance to figure out which way was up is not a basis to conclude
that the idea of moderators will not work.

2. I suggest that large changes which will affect member's experience
of the site be announced. If you are looking at different styles of
ads, let us know. This will save you all the outcry when you hit on
one we don't like. We will know we are part of an experiment, and I
guarantee we will react accordingly. As it is, I feel like you are
underestimating our ability to help you make the site better. It seems
that there once was a thread in existence which would have been a
great place to let us know what was going on, but it too seems to have
been dismantled with no explanation. I'm not asking for an exhaustive
weekly report on the site's progress here, just a quick, "Hi guys,
here's what's happening and why, and here's what you can do to help."


3. I suggest that a system be put in place to effectively remove
posts which violate the TOS. Recently there has been a rash of such
posts, and many attempts to report them have fallen on deaf ears. I
understand that it is not feasible for two people to police an entire
site at once, but I also understand that a new user (a group which it
seems the PFB admin is eager to court) coming to the site for the
first time will not be back if they open up a thread or letter filled
with ethnic slurs or offensive language. At least, if they do come
back, it will not be for the right reasons. The longer an offensive
post stays up, the longer PFB advertises itself as a site for trolls
to have flame wars unchecked.

Again, these are suggestions. They are not orders, they are not
demands, and they are certainly not threats. This site is about
giving a voice to the voiceless. I am sure that the PFB
administration understands that having a voice is quite different from
having that voice heard. I hope I'm not using mine in an empty room
here.

I was just reading over the Suggestion Box, and it made me realize
that I've been making a lot of requests lately, but there have been so
many changes, and I don't adapt well.

At the risk of being shown the door, I would still like to say two
more things, which I promise never to mention again.

We really need a delete/ignore button in the profiles.

Please reconsider the ads in between the comments. Placing them on
the top, bottom and sides of the page is great, but in between the
replies is making me crazy.

Thanks for listening.

This floating ad over to the side is like the creeping crud - am I
allowed to say that? - or even worse, kudzu.
It kinda unnerves me, the way it 'travels' up and down the screen,
like it's chasing me or something.

Is anyone even listening to us? We've noticed the changes in the
profiles and Top 20 (25) but some of the more serious complaints - the
ads, the vulgar posts, the silence from Greg and the rest of the PFB
staff beyond one liners - aren't getting such quick action. What's
going on, folks?

by Marge S. Posted Thu January 18, 2007 @ 9:50 PM

Shoving ads into all the letters was bad enough, but this long strip
of adds that follows you as you scroll up and down the page is too
much. What are you people thinking?? Enough already! Please get rid of
that floating strip of ads ASAP! It is incredibly annoying. If the PF
owners can't pay for the site themselves any longer, then start
offering a premium fee based membership This ad barrage is TOO much!
Who's ever in charge of the ads here either has no idea what he's
doing or doesn't care.

Does anybody else have a floating ad box, to the right? I literally
JUST got it when I came off the Waffle House posting, and it covers up
a good third of the posts, making them extremely hard to read. Plus
it's annoying as all get out!

I'm very concerned that in Greg's absence other members of the
administration aren't stepping up to remove a very offensive racial
slur.

I know that e-mails have been sent out about it. A racial slur is an
outright violation of the TOS. This is not a gray area in any form.
"Review" should not be necessary. Immediate removal is the only
action that should be taken.

This post is a call for someone to step up and handle business.

One more plea... reconsider the placement of advertisements in between
the comments. They completely interrupt my train of thought, and I
assure you I will never purposely click on any of them. Also, the
double lines that sometimes appear when there is no advertisement,
create a distraction and cause confusion.

Please rethink this decision, as I cannot imagine anyone enjoying the
disruption in the flow of comments caused by the advertisements.

Thank you.

It's nice that you can click on a writers name and visit their
profile, if they have one available.

I was thinking today that it would be equally as nice to be able to
click the "Company" name at the top of the letter that it's written to
and visit all the letters to that company??

On that same note, I am not sure if this is on the "To Do" list, but
the search function still does not work correctly most of the time.
Or possibly I am using it wrong? I usually use the search option
personally to look for companies. So for me, it would be nice to have
the option of searching for company names such that if I typed in
"General Motors", it would bring up GM with a link to all of it's
letters. Maybe this is not possible here with the current database.
However, if I currently type in "General Motors" to the search entry
area, I get all sorts of things with the word General or Motor in it.
This includes General Electric, etc.

Just some thoughts, both along the same lines.

I was wondering if there was any way to delete old blog posts. For
those of us on dial up (me and Venice that I know) it takes forever to
get into our own blogs.

Maybe a delete comment button would be a good idea so we could get rid
of all the superfulous comments.

Or maybe the posts could expire after a certain amount of time. I know
I dont go into too many blogs myself because it just takes too much
time.

I had a comment posted here about Christian bashing. I'd found a reply
to a letter that said some very nasty things about Christians, and
reposted it here to ask if it was the kind of thing that should be
reported. I asked for opinions and Mr. Helpful's thoughts. It was
deleted without a single word of explaination to me. I find that
extremely rude. I am all for the removal of any posts the PFB staff
deems inappropriate, but they need to have the common courtesy to
notify/explain why. How are people ever going to learn from their
mistakes if the staff refuses to tell them what they did wrong? I
would like to know why my comment was deleted. Thanks and happy

I'm guessing this site could be flooded next week with complaint

here. I think we'll have some challenging posts. It could get ugly,
but it also could be quite entertaining. Especially if Phyllis, Dora,
Dickie, et al. celebrate Christmas. ;)

So hang in there, take a breather if you find yourself getting to bent
out of joint over an overly demanding complaint letter, and if you
have to vent, just post something in Venice's PFB blog. I'm sure
she'd love to hear from you.

This is not an actual suggestion, but I have to point something out
here.

I tend to be a bit of a scrooge. Maybe it has something to do with
having a birthday at Christmas, I don't know. It's a big hassle and
now that my kids are older, the fun is pretty much gone.

But,I digress.

I always look forward to Christmas being over with. However, one of
the reasons that I'm looking forward to it *this year* is because
finally, FINALLY this incessant debate about the X in Christmas will
be
OVER!!!!

Can I get an alleluia, anyone?

Please, PLEASE can we just let it drop?

For the love of God, and I know I speak for a few others here, I don't
CARE who said what to whom and when. It's OVER. In the spirit of the
holidays, can we please just let it go???

Pretty please? :)

I find myself in the throes of a nervous tick every time I see the
word X-mas now, regardless of where I see it.

Have mercy!

Just what is going on? I have reported several replies to letters that

profanity laced garbage on the Target/Litterbox letter, as well as
Tina's constant Christian bashing, and have been COMPLETELY IGNORED

I think there should be some way to leave messages that are not
specific to a certain company (as in pertain to multiple companies, a
certain type of company, or some group that is not technically a
company). If there already is a way to do this, then it should be
more apparent since I was unable to find it. Also a section for
suggestions to consumers would be useful. For example, a useful
information to consumers that applies to multiple companies is the
difference between gb(gigabytes) and gb(giga bytes), since their
abbreviations are identical. Due to a few loopholes, my 250gb hard
drive came with about 210 gb free space. Since a giga byte is 1000^3
bytes and a gigabyte (as measured by the computer) is 1024^3 bytes,
there is a difference of 73741824 bytes for every gb. That's why my
250 gb hard drive came with 250 gb * 0.93 gb/gb = 232.5gb - 8.5 gb
backup drive = 224gb - 14 gb operating software = 210gb of usable
space. I don't know what everyone else thinks, but I think 40 gb is a
huge difference and something of which consumers should be aware.

So... wandering through the site I realized that nicknames only change
for future posts and not past posts however the avatar changes
everywhere. Is there anyway that nicknames can change all across the
board as well?

I think this will especially help keep track of who we are commenting
to when posters opt out of sharing their profiles. Therefore I feel
it will cut back on the "Please share your profile" pleas that some of
us regulars have been chanting lately.

By that I mean using X's to spell certain words. This time of year
they are mentioned often here, and using "XMas" instead of Christmas,
or "Xtian" instead of Christmas is extremely offensive. There is one
member here who gets very nasty when asked not to write them, claiming
we are wrong to be offended. Sorry, but I was raised Catholic and the
church taught that you always always spell out the word Christ,
period. You may insist it's proper, but to a great many of us, it's
very offensive.

I think it would be great to have a glossary or information page, or

around really mean.

"Bait and switch", for example, is one of the most wrongly used, and
overused expressions on this site.

Perhaps if consumers actually knew what it meant, they wouldn't look
so silly accusing business of it over something as simple as not price
matching, or running out of a limited quantity sale item.

Perhaps this suggestion has been mentioned before and if so, I
apologize:

I feel that PFB should consider investing in the technology required
that would allow a user to block another user completely. To me, this
would be a 'win-win' situation.

Here's an example:

Hypothetically (yeah right), lets assume there are a couple of users
who I have no respect for. Their comments grate on my last nerve, and
I'd rather not have anything to do with them. Instead of finding
myself consistenly irked (regardless of reason) or tempted to lash out
at them, I could instead click the 'ignore' feature that would, for
all intents and purposes, remove them from my view forever, if I so
chose.

The benefit to the user (me, in this example) is obvious. What might
not be quite as obvious here is the added benefit to PFB as a whole.
Having the ignore feature would, by default, cut down on the emails
that PFB Administration would receive, complaining about other users.
Also, it might cut down on the snarky remarks, of which MOST of us are
guilty of at one time or another.

I'm not saying it would be perfect, but it's something that should be
explored, in my opinion.

Just my .02 cents.

by Sleeperhold Posted Sat December 2, 2006 @ 9:20 PM

I have noticed that most of the responses to poster's letters is
"humorous" insults directed at the posters.
I think there should be some way for the administrators to encourage
only constructive criticism of poster's letters.
Now, it's a two way street- some poeple post awful letters just to
provoke flame wars. Maybe some people will need to have their posting
privleges revoked.
But the biggest problem does lie with the responses to these letters.
There seems to be one accepted group opinion- and if you don't share
it, you will have your opinion belittled and insulted.
I mean, I haven't said anything controversial at all (just stuck up
for a few people's rights to say less than popular things), and I've
already had posters suggest nicknames for me, etc.
So, maybe moderation is necessary. Maybe memberships need revoking.
Maybe some people just need reminders that CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is
appreciated. And maybe some people need to post a bit less often. I
mean, some folks have an opinion logged on just about evey letter-
honestly, people don't care to know whether every single member of tis
website stands with or against them on their letter. If you have
something to add, post. If you just want to say "I agree" or insult
the poster, than keep quiet.
That's my 2 cents. Probably worth about what you paid for it;-)

I haven't read much of the PFB 'stuff' lately because so many people
are just writing letters and complaining about so many petty things.
I got the E-mail tonight and started reading some of it and it goes on
and on and on - complaint after complaint. I did, a while back, send
a letter to WalMart and then got a response from them - a vague one.
But I never really got any positive information or a final respopnse
so I don't see where using Plant Feedback did much goodother than let
WalMart know that my complaint was being posted on a wide open webpage
where lots of people would see it. I guess I'm appreciative that you
are 'out there' because it seems to be a place where lots of
complaining people can let off steam. Maybe, it that is all you do,
it's enough. Happy Thanksgiving . . .

Kissing at the Red Robin (an obvious bogus letter) was posted on
Sunday morning. Within several hours it hit number one on the Top 20
list. This is idiocy at its finest.

Venice made this comment on her blogger.
"I'm beginning to think the Top 20 list is the root of all evil.
People will write anything just in the hopes of getting their letter
on the list. The Top 20 was my favorite part of the new site, but a
lot of the letters that end up there are just attention getters."

This is a great comment and 100% true. With the Top 20 list you get
people writing in with nane "letters" just to get comments and to see
how far up the list they can get with their absurity. Commenters then
can't help themselves and make comments that border on and sometimes
breaking TOS rules. It's almost like a domino effect.

What is very sad is that writers of decent letters seem to get "heat"
from commenters that are in no way deserved. If they use one wrong
term they "get hit" with rudeness.

I (the Prisoner) am actually a reincarnation of a former member.
Because of the vast increase of inane letters and then the creation of
moderators to protect the letter writers of "inane letters" I
"cancelled" my account as a show of protest. Oh, I'm still very much
here -- just under a
different name (but I don't have multiple accounts).

My advice -- get rid of the list. Like Venice said it's the "root of
all evil".

I've been gone for a little bit and the first three letters I read
left me a bit disappointed. The "Walmart Gave My Car Away..." and "I
Wanted to Buy Boots But Walmart wouldn't Let Me" letters are full of
what I consider pretty rude responses, and the "Kissing At Chili's"
responses have some pretty colorful profanity in them. Very
disappointing. We say we don't need/want moderation, but we can't seem
to act that way.

I have no problem with the majority of the mods at all. However I
will say that I think Beth was a very poor choice of admin. She has a
serious attitude problem. Many of her posts are snotty, condescending
and just plain rude. They have a "i am the great and powerful admin"
tone to them. Look at the infamous rape letter for example. I think
she's on some kind of power trip to be honest. And Mr. Helpful, while
I like you, I think you need a minor adjustment or two as well. It's
completely inappropriate for the admins of this site to post in a
sarcastic, nasty manner as I have seen you do many times. Yes, you're
human, and no no one expects you guys to be robots, but as the powers
that be around here, you should be more professional.
I'm sure I'll be banned now, and I'll accept that. Beth's posts on
the rape letter really upset me and Mr. Helpful's rude and sarcastic
remarks about Chris and Starlight did as well, and I need to say
something.

1) We may want to try and make it more obvious that the "other"

and might get upset that they do not get a response.

2) Has anyone else downloaded the new Internet Explorer that just came
out?! (The one that finally has tabbed browsing, etc). Ever since I
have, the comments to the letters get entirely underlined each time my
mouse passes over them. Likewise, when my mouse passes over the
comments area that says the name of the poster, date, etc, that whole

Somebody messed up when they did the "Consumer Alert Check Your Meds"
posting. The huge "WARNING" graphic pushes the rest of the text on the
page out of the frame, making all of it impossible to read because
it's cut off where it was pushed out. The huge "WARNING" graphic needs

No offense at all to the chosen PFB moderators, but is this what PFB
has become? While I did not read the entire thread word for word, I
did not find some overwhelming call for moderators, as Greg has
suggested in the announcement of it.

It's obviously your site and your call PFB. As a feedback site, I
felt the need to provide my feedback on your site. So, if I were to
be writing a real letter, I would have marked that I had been
satisfied with the services of this site in the past, but that I am
now no longer satisfied.

Again, this has nothing at all to do with those who are moderators, as
I have (and had) nothing but respect for them before anyways. I just
already feel like a child reading the first main thread to "have the
clamps put down" since this new PFB has been brought about.

That said, I like the old PFB better. My opinion only and I expect
nor pretend to demand any changes because of such an opinion. Just
putting it out there. I have already stopped coming here every few
hours, and now go easily over a day or two without a visit. I figure
that this will stretch to weeks and months the more I feel like a
child.

"My report covers one more reason why we don't need the government to
regulate the marketplace. Thanks to the Internet, consumers now have
new ways to talk back to big companies. Anyone can publicize bad
service by airing snarky videos at sites like YouTube.com or
Consumerist.com. It's consumer revenge! I'll show you some of the

It would be kind of cool if when a large issue, like say Walmart and

That way, the consumer could be heard and counted by the retailer,in
a coherant way.And we could have just one letter to debate the
merits,
or lack thereof, of layaway.

I have been really reading and re-reading alot of the responses to the
letters here over the last few days, and something strikes me.....When
we call a letter writer out on asking for freebies alot of times their
response is well there was a field for it in the letter template
(provided by PFB). One person even went on to say that you can not
leave that portion blank (although I think if you hit the space bar a
few times it would probably allow you to). Can the Powers That Be at
PFB possibly look into taking that part of the template out all
together? Having it there kind of makes it look like PFB is mandating
asking for freebies.....

I renew my call (a few suggestions down), that ANYONE commenting on
letters should have to make their profiles public. It adds to the
credibility or lack there of --of the poster. Also is there a way to
make sure that we do not have one person starting many different
accounts? Is it just simply if you have more than 1 e-mail account
you can have more than 1 planet feedback account?

If profiles are public then people have to own their comments. They
cannot simply come here start trouble or stir the pot, and sit back
and watch. This is really becoming sport for some people. Another
benefit of having profiles public is we will get to know the poster
and see his/her track record-- to be able to determine if that person
is a trouble maker, just having a bad day, or if the letter just
touched on a nerve for the poster.

Um...this is probably a stupid question but..where is this page?!
LOL!

When I click on Suggestion Box it takes me to the old page that takes
forever to load. I had to go to my profile and click on all my
comments and then click on one I had made in this thread to find it.

Am I nuts? LOL!

by RedheadWGlasses Posted Sat September 30, 2006 @ 5:29 PM

What if we gave people the option of submitting a "draft" letter for
feedback? People who respond would need to be made aware that they
are to provide constructive criticism.

The OP could be told that the draft would be deleted automatically
after, say, seven days, if it wasn't edited/updated and finished/sent
on to the company/recipient.

Maybe someone would truly appreciate comments such as "You need to run
spell check," or "you have a valid complaint, but you shouldn't muddy
it with the reference to XYZ."

Just a thought. Thanks.

This isn't a complaint or a suggestion. Just thought you guys would
get a kick out of this.

If you noticed the sudden influx of complaints to Wal-Mart about the
layaway program being discontinued, it's because WOAI News in San
Antonio did a story about it last night and listed PlanetFeedback as
the place to go to complain to Wal-Mart. Here's the link to the online
transcript so you can see for yourself.

I hope site traffic yields ad revenue - free advertising rocks! by The Original Nethead Thu September 28, 2006 @ 12:41 AM

by The Original Nethead Posted Tue September 26, 2006 @ 8:31 PM

1. How about cutting the suggestion box page off at a certain MB level
rather than by date, so that it won't take forever to load like the
old page? The one dated 2005 freezes my computer.

2. Fix the compatibility issues. I just went off site to a library,
and wrote a letter while I was there. Now I'm home and can't read my
own letter. Is there any way to just view text on the site? This is
the only site where I have a problem viewing anything, or at least the
only one I've found.

And yes, I am going to keep complaining about it until you fix it.
I'm not the only one - just the one with the biggest mouth.

3. When I tried to write the above letter, the site refused to admit
Coca Cola and Coca-Cola are the same company. The old site didn't
have this problem; why is the new one brain damaged?

I left this on Venice's blog, but I think that i would like to bring
it up here also. I know that I may get flamed for this but I hope not
too much :) LOL. I would like to suggest that anyone COMMENTING on
letters be required to make their profiles public, that way they can
own ANY comments that they make. There are some commenters (none of
which are regular commenters I believe), that make nasty or snide
remarks, and have their profiles blocked. There is no way to keep
these people in check if we can not see the nature of the comments
that they normally make. Some people (including me) generally make
neutral comments but occasionally get so incensed by something that
the comment may be a little more viscious than normal. It would be
nice to tell if the commenter is here to just cause trouble and stir
the pot or if they were just having a bad day. I have also noticed
that sometimes the names change but the tone of and writing in the
comments sounds very similiar to other ones. Basically one person can
come here make a bunch of inflammatory comments, block their profile
and keep changing their name in an attempt to go undetected.


Love you guys!! rxgirl
