Beating Dead Horses! (no offense to any PETA supporters!!!!)

Posted Mon August 21, 2006 3:33 pm, by MA L. written to PlanetFeedback

Write a Letter to this Company  |  Rate this Company


**Please allow me to preface this by stating that nowhere during the course of this letter do I suggest, encourage or advocate the beating of horses or any other animal!**

As a long-time user of PFB, I implore my fellow PFB regulars to pay attention when responding to letters in the Top 20!

All too often, a letter gets prominent attention in this very public area for FAR too long simply because we as regulars keep commenting and responding LONG after the topic should have died.

For example, Tabitha and her Subway high chair fiasco, The Eljer toilet incident and my personal LEAST favorite, the allegedly whiney children and their mother, "Nichole Von Trapp."

People are STILL posting responses when the letter should have gone on to that great circular file in the sky!

I beg of you, I plead with you, (heck, fairywithfangs, rxgirl and Lisa Smith have all offered money!)look at the date on the original letter. If it is more than 2 weeks old, for the love of all that is holy, PLEASE DON'T ADD ANOTHER POST!!!!

Put something in your blog, try and send an email, ANYTHING, just don't add your $.02 worth to a letter that has long since passed it's expiration date!

It has been almost two weeks since the last comment, so I guess I made
the deadline. I don't have anything substantial to offer, but as a
former hs teacher, I am amused by ill fated attempts to change the
behavior of others. Your intentions are good however.

first of all some of us may not get on until two weeks past the date,
and still would like to comment on it. Don't ya think this is a tad
bit selfish? just becasue you have the time of day to look at these
when ever, some of us have other lives and responsibilities... just my
view point.

I just find it funny the ppl who want i tto go away are obviously
still viewing and commenting on it...making it stay longer :) Just an
observation

Personally, I wish THIS letter would go away.

However, with all due respect to the OP, I don't think any of us have
the right to dictate to which letters people can and cannot reply,
regardless of how long the letter's been around.

Mea Culpa! OK, I admit I unleashed the PFB beast here, and now I
guess it's my job to reign it back in. (Next time I'll know better!)

While I recognize that your first post about PETA appeared to be just
as tongue-in-cheek as mine, somehow it spiraled into a horrific flame
war which was EXACTLY what I myself was protesting with my letter (I
trust you actually READ my letter before you posted, right?)

I have been on PFB for years - Even back when it was YouGetHeard.com.
I have recommended it to MANY people both professionally and
personally and when comments like this spiral out of control that are
irrelevant, inappropriate and COMPLETELY off topic, it makes the
community look like we're nothing but a bunch of vicious pirhana with
nothing better to do than attack each other. Then other people (and
possibly

I don't want something that I promote to others to give that kind of
impression. Clearly it would make ME look bad and I'm not ABOUT to
purposefully make myself look like that!

Now, I sincerely hope you won't think I am singling you out because I
know you were not alone in the discussion by any means. But since
your message kind of "launched a thousand other messages" I am
addressing this (sort of) to you.

If you disagree with a commenter, fine. Disagree all you want, but
the disagreement really needs to be relevant to the original letter or
please take it offline.

When people start nit picking every comment, getting offended or irate
and then get off topic (and I admit, I have been guilty of that on a
few occasions) it contibutes to messages being here WAY longer than
they need to be - that's why I posted my letter.

Sure I don't HAVE to read Nichole's post or the Eljer toilet post
again - I already know that nothing new has been added. But it still
irks me that another really good letter might be out there waiting for
some feedback (hence, the name PLANET FEEDBACK) and it's not getting
up there because of things like this.

So I hope that you can appreciate where I am coming from and
respectfully ask that you help me out by being the bigger person and
just letting this go before the post gets any more long winded than it
already has.

I said,"what if I told you I was?" and I have used that on people I've
come in contact with as an attempt to show them that even rape does
not make a human life worthless.

I can see that VC and I are at the opposite ends of the spectrum but
even VC is a worthy individual and should be allowed to say whatever
they want to,so why can't "he" respect my opinion without ranting that
I'm trying to tell him how to live,I'm not.

A very dear friend of mine was the product of a rape and was raised by
her mother with love and care yet I was not and I was abandoned by my
parents to be raised by my stepmother with no help from anyone.

I have posted in other places that my stepmother had been raised in an
orphanage in Miss during the depression and raised me(long after my
dad left her she kept us and loved us as her own) to stand for what I
thought was right always telling me that a true hero is one that does
the right thing when no one else is looking.I suppose since she had so
little by the world's standards she could be the kind of person that
cared for others and was trustworthy.Sort of makes worldly tresures
seem insignicant to me.

Anyway,I wasn't looking for a fight,just want to throw some "thinking
material" out there.

I wish you all the best that whoever you believe in has to offer,even
you VC!

Perhaps instead of pleading to the users, you should plead to the PFB
team to change the qualifications of getting a letter on the top 20.
If it's not there, people won't post (for the most part).

If it bothers you so much, just stop reading the letter.. lol, that's
what I do. I don't think asking users to not comment on old letters is
the answer. Take me for example, I was off of PFB for a while and now
I just came back, and I'm going to participate in the letters I've
missed :P.

I find it funny you posted a letter that will most likely become
something you are trying to fight against....

Maybe "top 20" is too lofty of a goal? Maybe reduce it to "top 10"
and at least they'll drop out of site that much more quickly.

. . .that the messages never be commented on again. I am also not
blaming the OP's for posting the letters in the first place.

My personal (and believe me, I KNOW it is JUST my opinion!)
frustration comes from posts that sit on the top 20 for WEEKS with no
new advice or information added and just collect snips and barbs from
responders and a continual re-hash of information that was posted
already.

I have personally emailed Mr. Helpful about this subject and there is
apparently some sort of calculation involved that automatically
selects which messages wind up on the Top 20. What people don't
seemto understand, is that when we post trivial (and you have to
admit, most of the posts added beyond a week or two are assuredly
trivial!) comments, it affects that calculation and keeps the message
up there longer than it has to.

There doesn't seem to be any mechanism to manually intervene with a
letter that is clearly serving no useful purpose anymore and would
make room for a new letter to be reviewed.

And to those people who chose to take my comments here personally,
please read my letter again. I did not TELL anyone what they should
do, I was merely asking. I was also seeking to make light of the
subject because it is kind of humorous that more than a month later,
we're STILL debating whether kids should be singing in a dressing room
(& sorry, Nichole, nothing personal against you, but your letter is
assuredly going down in the hall of fame just for the incredible
response it received!) when thre HAS to be something else new we could
move on to.

All I am asking for is for people to use a little discretion and not
post replies to old letters just for the sake of posting.

And now we will get to see this one 3 months later as well! :P

Thanks a lot...

Regardless of that, I do wish that the Top 20 would have a timeout on
them so they would slowly fall of the list. I would suggest that
after a 6-8 weeks from the original letter submit date, it is not
eligible for the Top 20 and if it is on the Top 20, it would just fall
away at that point.

You could still comment on the letters, they just would not be in the
Top 20.

I looked at some of the top 20 list and will someone explain to me
about Lisa S. who's 15th right now? She didn't even post a complaint
against a company did she? Perhaps I don't understand everything
about this site.

If people have something to say, they should say it. My (or your)
opinion on a letter is no less valid whether the letter is 14 days old
or 14.

If there's a problem, PFB could disable commenting on letters after X
days, but I think that's too rash.

Actually it is the regular posters that keep the postings around,
including my Eljer one which you made it your business to mention.
Amanda made a comment today on it, even though I haven't added
anything in days. In fact, it was your message that she added to on
my post. If she had let things slide as you and others said to do, it
would go off the list.

I respond to messages about me or about the situation. I would be fine
with no further comments made on it and it dropping from the top 20
list. I know the regulars are going to come after me for this
message. I couldn't help commenting about the irony of Amanda
continuing on my post, given what was said here.

Actually mine was going to be a blog, but you wrote it better anyway.

I dont think my dollar idea worked to well, as Children are still not
wanted at Kaufmann's and Eljer Employees are still harrassing
people....
Maybe I need to switch to ice cream cones....

Anyway, I agree wholeheartedly with you. As someone else said
downthread, I think it's mostly the new people who come and (not
recognizing the stench of dead horse) click the topic and comment,
simply because it's new to them. Meanwhile the rest of us are twiching
with frustration at seeing them NEVER GO AWAY. LOL - With your
wonderful new post, I'm sure the good newbies will concur.

On the other hand, and I hate to be a naysayer, there might be a few,
trollish individuals who enjoy the stench of dead horse, and decide to
make it their goal in life to keep them alive, just to spite us. LOL

Hooray for your letter, and for referring to the "children not wanted"
lady as Nichole Von Trapp. I thought it was pretty funny, conjuring
up an image of the dressing rooms being alive with the sound of kids
singing "silly songs."

Seriously, you are right, and I think it is time someone made this
point clearly. I love it that the letters are available for our
perusal after the fact, but maybe it would be a good thought for them
to be relocated to an archive after a month or so, so we don't get
re-appearing letters that we're all sick of. Maybe Mr. Helpful will
have a suggestion? *ahem* :)

The all time winner has to be the undercooked poptarts letter! I think
it was finally removed after some shameless pleading by members
(me...haha).

I think most of the problem is that new people or lurkers click on the
Top Twenty letters usually for the first time and decide to comment.
Then the regular users, after seeing that a letter is still in the Top
Twenty or just our of curiosity, continue to check the letters to see
if there's anything new. The ones reading it for the first time don't
bother to look at all the previous comments and end up repeating the
same things over and over again, which is what keeps the letter in the
Top Twenty. I think that was the case in all the examples you
mentioned. It makes it hard for new letters to squeeze their way in.

Maybe after a certain amount of time, a letter could be retired to
another portion of PFB where everyone can beat it to death. Maybe it
can even be called "Dead Horses" (with a disclaimer, of course...
haha). Or, maybe PFB could figure out a new method of determining the
Top Twenty so that the letters change more frequently. (Sorry, Mr.
Helpful.)

Letters do pass a point where the comments are redundant and no longer
useful.
