Is it really ethical to Post a Different Blogging Site as Part of your Post--Mentioning Names is a "No"..way for me

As I checked and do my rounds in PP today, I found and saw a different level of post of our dear members--Mentioning names of the other blogging site and telling the flaws and errors and so and so, Is it really something worth it, or how can it benefit the other members? I know that PP is a new site and we are able to post anything we like, from personal down to many other categories, but we should remember that both of the site helped us one way or another, and let us move on to another level of mindset, that Persona is still Persona, we should be more creative and supportive in giving valuable post, so that the site will achieve their goals and putting them into situations to earn more ads using the criteria given to PP. In this way both parties will benefit from it. It's not my intentions to go over to your own way of writing your post, besides it is your prerogative, but at this moment in time, we should be very careful not to hurt any of both parties by exchanging some negative feed backs or any sorts.

Have a great weekend and God speed!

I disagree. Both sites are a business just like Walmart and Target are businesses. As such, they are subject to public praise, as well as public scrutiny. It is up to the businesses to maintain their image, positive or negative, based on what they do, how they interact with their employees and customers, or in this case contributors. Calling out names is part of the business of being in business and anyone who want to be in business should know this, and keep it in mind that in order for their business to be successful, they have to keep everyone happy. You can't please everyone, and not everyone no matter what you do is going to be. But people should be able to freely express their opinion, and call out names when they feel it is appropriate to do so.

Agreed. You just have to watch out for defamation. Companies are starting to take an aggressive legal approach to online reviews that are defamatory.

Anja wrote on July 13, 2014, 11:02 AM

I assume you use the other site as well. I have to say that I don't see people who spend their time praising the site being treated better than those who occasionally criticize it. The names get mentioned and they get more attention. As long as you tell the truth, you're okay.

Speaking personally, I have gotten so frustrated with Bubblews that I have just had to blow off some steam - both on Bubblews and elsewhere. I haven't gone overboard with the criticism and have always told it as it affected me - their slogan is 'Speak Freely - Write Your World' and the errors there are certainly part of my world.

AdrienneJenkins wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:38 PM

Agreed. It's nice to have a spot to vent and support one another.

Porwest wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:56 PM

You're right. Our world right now is fraught with errors, might as well write about it. :) I am hoping they get the issues worked out real soon, and especially after today's weird little glitch of disappearing and reappearing posts.

I think that in some of the back-and-forth debates about new changes being implemented, it's useful to compare what other sites did right and wrong, because that's helpful. But I don't think I would use Persona Paper to promote my other endeavors. I did write a post about Yahoo Voices shutting down, but that was more of a news item (and memoriam, for there are quite a few writers here whom I met there).

I agree I just made a post about it too before reading yours. In response to Porwest well yes it is business but what I consider as unfair that other site does not allow posting about other sites or you get a violation and sometimes even deleted.

I try not to, but I did post about the new look today.

DoubleDabrew wrote on July 16, 2014, 7:56 PM

I think that as long as there are no abuses and what is posted is not defamatory, there is no problem. I have noticed that there are so many posts on it here but they are basically discussing its pros and cons.

Thank you all for your comments, actually that is only on my own point of view, anyone can post, I remember one time I mentioned the name of the site in a comment but I don't remember that I enclosed it on a title of my articles...Anyways, we prefer to be diplomatic in many other ways, because this is a free world to conceived and share any views, and points that we know will be helpful to one another as part of informative representations of ideas and philosophies. Thank you Porwest , Anja , Kasman , AdrienneJenkins , AliCanary , paperdaisyflower7 , gidget and DoubleDabrew in all of your ideas and views.

paperdaisyflower7 Rules like that, to me, show an insecurity in the strength of their own business. Just my point of view. It would be like sitting in a McDonald's restaurant having a conversation about Burger King and having a manager walk up to my table and ask me to leave if I did not stop. Or worse, telling me that discussions of other fast food restaurants within their establishment were banned. Ridiculous, really.

I agree. What is the point of giving negatives about a site. If someone has nothing nice to say, why say anything at all!

midastouch wrote on July 22, 2014, 2:19 PM

I completely agree with you
if any person has any issues with any other site
such complaints should be made to the admin or support of such site
than coming over to PP to criticize and condemn
it sure is not helping PP

Isn't it amazing that companies want reviews, but want to take action against those reviews that shoe them in a negative light. What a world we live in...

LeslieAdrienne wrote on July 28, 2014, 10:44 AM

The truth is the truth. I agree with Porwest, if you are in business, it is your responsibility to create your own reputation. Businesses begin without a reputation and as time goes on and services are provided, a reputation is built. I think that Bubblews for one is a good example of improvement. There are tons and tons of complaints about them, which they seem to be attempting to adjust. I give them credit for searching out a means to establish themselves as a reputable company.

Our world is closing in on us and the freedom of speech is being reinterpreted to be the freedom to speak nicely. We need the ability to express the depths of our hearts.... that is true freedom

LeslieAdrienne wrote on July 28, 2014, 10:49 AM

But, when you do write about the right and wrong of other sites, it helps developers know what to do and what not to do. Look at Persona Paper.... they have implemented some things that I know came about because of other sites mistakes... No one is perfect in their planning and, healthy criticism is just that, healthy.....

LeslieAdrienne wrote on July 28, 2014, 10:51 AM

Absolutely the truth... absolutely the truth!

LeslieAdrienne wrote on July 28, 2014, 10:53 AM

The negative helps us/them to grow. Would your mother let you go to school with dirty clothes on? No! She would tell you that wearing dirty clothes is negative and will cause you to be persecuted. Why not tell others what has been wrong with a site, so that it can be righted?

LeslieAdrienne wrote on July 28, 2014, 10:55 AM

But it does help those who are writing on that site to see what past experiences have been.....

AliCanary wrote on July 28, 2014, 12:00 PM

Yep, that's what I said.

Iluvhtc wrote on July 29, 2014, 8:43 PM

There are two separated lines for two different sites, let's say one moves from the other, and you know, sometimes mentioning names can cause issues. I agree with what you have said in this post.

GemOfAGirl wrote on December 18, 2014, 10:11 PM

There appears to be quite a decrease in those types of articles since you originally posted this one. I think a lot of people that were writing those needed to vent, and PP provided a place where they could vent with a lot of others who understood their frustrations.
