Re: Why the assertion you should only comment in a USCC forum if you are a current customer/employee
Also, I was not commenting on the general idea of no one raising a stink on positive comments. I was being very specific in what I was mentioning-I was specifically arguing against the idea that you had to be an employee or a customer to comment on a carrier. What I was trying to say is that it should not matter if you are affiliated with the company or not, and people seem not to care about the lack of affiliation, if there are positive comments instead of negative.
I know that there have been trolls that have left negative comments about USCC, as well as other carriers. However, many of the recent negative comments are legit. They are deserved complaints about the overhyped Belief plans. Now, as I said earlier, I personally think there are many good things about these new plans, as well as some bad things. And I feel, due to unexpected griping about features of the new plans, some USCC employees are extra sensitive to the criticisms. Once again, I dont want to turn this into a "Belief plans suck" conversation, because I personally dont really feel that way about them.
As far as "why comment on things that dont affect you", I would be careful to say who is affected and who isnt. In most cases we really dont know. Some people who are not USCC customers or employees who comment, may have been considering USCC's new plans or told to wait for the new plans. Others might work for competition and have to sell against USCC in their area. Others may just have a passion for the wireless industry, and that is their "baby" to talk about. So I feel that, as long as a person is respectful, not trolling or anything like that, s/he should not be discouraged from commenting, even if s/he doesnt work for or have that carrier's service.
