To help or not to help [ when Microsoft asks for it]


Frans doesn’t like when Microsoft asks for help


First of all, although I disagree with his opinion, I want to strongly protest the unfriendly responses to his post. Everyone should be able to freely raise issues and speak their mind without fear of getting flamed and trolled. 


On second thought, I’m not even going to post my opinion on the matter.  My stand on this really isn’t as important as a fellow blogger getting whammed just for expressing an opinion.

  1. Lots of people have been getting flamed for posting anything lately. I got flamed two weeks ago for posting information about a product that I rescued from the dead and was going to re-publish for developers. This community is getting fairly nasty, and some people need to chill out.

    At the same time, Frans is very negative most of the time, and needs to be more measured in his responses if he doesn’t want to get flamed. Otherwise he’s getting what he asks for.

  2. I agree. Can’t we all get along. Definitely stay away from ad-hominem attacks. Attack the idea, not the person.
