It is a good thing for people to be able to provide others with feedback and personal experiences with businesses (supply vendors, breeders, feeder suppliers, etc.), especially with the online world. However, some rules about such threads needs to be put in place to ensure that the posts provide good information and to not deteriorate into constant bashing or libel.

Posts of this nature should:
- Reflect one's direct experiences (no hearsay, or repeating what you've been told by others)
- Stick to the simple facts (posts that cross over into overly inflammatory views risk having those posts removed)
- Focus on providing the information the OP asked for
- Don't spend time trying to refute or argue validity of other people's experiences
- Don't turn someone's request for feedback into a big argument about your own experiences

Hopefully this will help define where the line is in regards to this topic. I think it a great thing to be able to help each other out in this community. But remember this isn't a place for people to simply vent about or bash businesses.
