If I was more specific, it wouldn't be a meta-complaint, would it now?

Yeah....provide more details so we can all have a go at you. You haven't given us anything to sink our teeth into.

Oh dear....I think I just complained about your complaint about people who complain about people who complain in Complaints Corner. Oh well....off to find someone to fart next to.

Re: Meta-Complaint

I think it is your fault. You are certainly the one in the wrong and you should be eaten alive by all the lions of EF.

Silly, meta-complaints are in fact, caused by this heat.

Re: Meta-Complaint

Come on now Weejeem, you know the rules:
- give us a little info about your complaints
- we will initially agree with you
- bolstered by our reactions, you back up your complaint with more info since you're getting that 'Yes, I am right' feeling
- the additional info, no matter how small, will turn us into pack animals all attacking you for being so small-minded for complaining in the first place.

No, not if they're hijacking the original complainant's thread - they should start their own thread, so we can then complain about them complaining, whilst still being able to side with the original complaint, and so on.

Otherwise the whole forum whould just be one big mess of everyone bitching about everyone el... oh, hang on a second

Actually, you should know that any meta-complaint should include all sources and methods for how those sources were collected, collated and analysed. Without such background, how on earth can you expect anyone to take you seriously.

Please list references using the Vancouver sytle.

Thank you.

The Editor.

Re: Meta-Complaint

I would like to add to this.

I would like to complain about not being able to complain about anything as it is such a beautiful day.
