Shut your hole unless you have been there, done that

shut your face - Google SearchI remember talking to Seth Godin a couple years ago and he told me the reason he doesn’t allow comments on his blog or on Twitter/Facebook is that he can’t handle anonymous criticism. He went on to talk about how he wishes everyone had to present an ID of sorts to make a comment online.

Now I have always embraced feedback…

HOWEVER

When I see people on FB/Twitter/Comments Section make remarks about how I am “failing”, or “missing revenue because I am not doing X”,  Or  as what just happened recently: some guy just made a post talking about people that have popups on their website.  Of course he has ZERO quantified data, though.

Here is what I do… when I surf around the internet and see something that I would do different BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE I will simply share with the person something like,  “Hey I see you’re doing X.  With X company/site I did X like this and saw a big result.  Just wanted to share that with you”

Quantified results.  Take from it what you will.

    Seth Godin is such a knowledgable guy. I have learned so much from him. I’m glad to hear that you also find him helpful.

    Whatever man. It is freedom of speech to say whatever the hell I want. And if you don’t like it you can shove it up your ass.

    Oh come on. Like you’ve never blindly said something online while hiding behind the option of being anonamyous?
