Microsoft will pay content providers to shun Google -- and get in bed with Bing (Download Squad)

Nov 23rd 2009 6:41PM I am in no way defending, condoning, or in any way supporting the trolls. However, I am simply pointing out that you should never feed the trolls.

Trolls do everything in their power to make you look bad. And they are like animals; when you feed them, they come back. Why would you want to bait someone who does all they can to make you look bad?

And I could spit out these motivational sayings and moral rules all night long. For instance, you may have mostly good comments, however a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.

Nov 23rd 2009 6:18PM Perfectly understandable, except for two exceptions:

1. You are still in a position where you are expected by your readers to be more professional.

and

2. I don't know about you, but I was raised with the golden rule: Treat others as you would want to be treated.

My kid sister never quite got it, she looked at it as "Treat others as they treat you," however, you should be polite, and respectful, even if they throw shit in your face. Even if you look weak AT THE TIME, at least you are showing how much more wise you are. You exhibit a greater maturity that in the long run will make more people respect you.

It's much harder to gain the respect of your readers when you insult them. Even if they hit first. Just because you are a DLS writer doesn't mean we respect you. Quite the opposite; we expect more from you.

I'm not flaming you, yet, I'm just offering a piece of advice.


Remember the motto, "The costumer is always right"? You may not like it, but it's true. You don't have to correct your article, and you don't have to make any note of it, but you do need to accept that the costumer is correcting you. And if they aren't right, don't knock them, because that just makes you look like a fool.

I don't care if the article looks like it was written by a third grader who didn't get their cookies. As long as I can understand it, and get my news, I'm happy. Though when the author pulls stunts such as that, I start to question the reliability of the article.

Now for the justified flame:

By your actions in previous comments, you have secured yourself as an unprofessional, rude, immature, "internet bad ass." You, in a field such as this, don't know how to accept criticism. You might do better writing your news articles on 4chan's /b/. At least there, you can be an ass, and it be acceptable.

Nov 17th 2009 11:05AM Don't like grease? Wash your hands, use a pencil, or don't buy it. A lot of products are getting touch screen because they are high in demand. People want it? People get it.

Hope that razor of yours doesn't freeze up. Could hurt a little.
