I have been thinking this over. Pondering, you might say. And I have a proposal.
If you have a major complaint, or even a minor complaint, about
GHI’s business model
or shipping costs
or catalog line
or product strategy
or availability in your country from your preferred distributor
or the choice of the processor used on a board
or the lack of support for SDLC and BISYNC protocols
or any other thing that is a complaint for GHI
Communicate with GHI directly through their contact forms and start a dialog with them - directly - with people who can do something about it - if they want to.
It always comes down to that. Gus always says, “Contact us and we will try to make you happy.”
If you want to be happy.
If you don’t want to be happy, please take it somewhere else.
If contacting GHI directly so that they can make you happy won’t make you happy, neither will a pile of forum posts.
Start your own company
or find a new vendor
or practice some mindfulness
The community welcomes you and wants to help
and be your Internet friend
Take complaints to the people who can - and want to - do something about it
when it can really make you happy
I can’t really help with those complaints.
I can’t add my voice to the complaint in a way that will help.
I can’t make anyone feel happier about the situation by expressing how the complaint is wrong.
Only GHI, through direct dialog has a chance at that.
That’s what I have been pondering. (say it, ‘pondering’, it’s fun to say).
