I read the harsh words regarding this HP Consultants you wrote. I went to the BBB to check on the assault you were putting on them only to find out they did and do have a "A" rating! What is this nonsense you wrote about? Its a little scary to read what you people write! You sit back and butcher companies without having the correct information, that's is not right. Can you imagine if someone like you sat in a forum like this and ridiculed you and your company when you knew it was wrong? I'm all for the protection of consumer rights, and I believe forums like this are good when used properly, but when you see people calling other people parasites, Parasites of that slimy ilk, without even looking into the company, that's just pure laziness and meanness!
I have seen the BBB rate a lot of great companies poorly and a lot of poor companies great. What really matters is how does the company perform? Are you sitting face to face with them or is it a call center trying to get you to pay money over the phone without the willingness of writing you a guarantee or at least giving you the opportunity to go to their office and ask for referrals or references? These are questions you should be asking yourself and advise you should be sharing. I guess I just hate to see such quick judgment on any companies without any background knowledge. I own a small company and I know that it was very difficult getting it started, not to mention how hard it is to keep running! You do your very best to give the best services and work long hours to make it your own. It would be great to open a new business and be able to show you've been open for 10 years, but it just doesn't work that way. Its especially hard when people are getting poor advise from uneducated bloggers beating up your business without any real knowledge and you can't do anything about it!.
It really looked like Ace was trying to get some real answer's and help and all he got was someone who has absolutely no clue or knowledge about the situation, providing nothing but worthless advise. Here is an idea for Theo, just stay out of the conversation if you do not really know what your talking about. It's OK not to know about somethings Theo, you do not always need to spout off just to get some air time. You certainly come across as that type of blogger. This is just my humble opinion. Good luck Ace, I hope you have success getting rid of that well thought out investment!
