Hey Everyone. I have been a member of DC for a couple of years and something has been bugging me here of late.
I have seen alot of salespeople and jokesters come and go from our beloved site and Ive learned to recognize phony discussions, started either to move product OR elicit sympathy/emotion from our members.
Id like to share some pointers and hope other long-time members will share the benefit of their experience, too.
With salespeople, they will start a discussion and mention a product/website time and again within. They may also start a flame-out with a member/s in order to attract maximum exposure to the discussion.
With jokesters, they will attempt to stir strong emotions in members with stories that could be ripped straight from the headlines-and often are.
Im not suggesting to be wary of everyone but a little healthy skepticism goes a long way and eventually these types weed themselves out.
Ultimately, what they manage to do is take the focus off our real struggles and that is never okay! Lots of Love to all of you.
