Re: Any unburned?
- Well you guys really blasted me when I spoke out against Obama, But that's politics and should be expected, no big deal. However when a guy asked for help on a promo for a new show he was putting together, he was ripped apart.
The abuse was condescending and rude. I was shocked, couldn't understand why he treated so badly.
The sad thing is Jan has a unique product that if packaged correctly
would be a great addition to certain genre of podcasters. I have been
talking with Jan offlist and will be working very hard to make his
hit-test available to our community members, his production cost are not
at all high and he has a viable product that we feel would be a nice
edition to the 700 or so podcasts that we think could benefit from
running the hit-test. It does not fit my show, but it fits well with a
great deal of others. This list has always been semi-hostile to anyone
that is trying to help podcasters when there is even a sniff of money.

But seriously, Every once in awhile there are misunderstandings here, and we
have our share of over actors and those who play the victim.
I say it everytime it happens. When you have a room with 1000 people, there
are bound to be disagreements.
Glad to see people so eager to move forward.
On a positive note, Jan hooking up with a podcasting network such as Todds
is great idea! Todd is a man who gets things done and he does a lot, so
more power to you both!
The most interesting person you will never meet!
