Actually, this is one of the things you should have on your radar. A lot of the complaints arise because someone feels blindsided by some convention, regulation, or business.

Spotting those cases and being aware that things aren't always as you may expect can be _really_ useful information.
Yeah true. I have read through the complaints. But that gives me hives. I want to hear just as much good, because I know that there is!! I have one person that has been filling my head with all the complaints for days since I came upon this forum, and it has been REALLY helpful. But it also keeps me up at night. I am a pretty type A person - likes knowing what I am getting into on all fronts, so I probably over prepare. I do it for vacations too. But it gets me through!

So, so true. It's the questions you don't think of asking which catch you off balance.
