First off, let me say NS is invaluable as far as getting public opinions on sample libraries. It's guided me to make some really solid purchases, and I thank everyone who's ever given me advice.
What I don't like lately is clearly biased opinions from either resellers or people in some way affiliated with developers. The problem here is that while some of us know who they are, many other people don't know that you happen to sell Such-and-Such Strings, or what have you. And when these affiliates beam about the product that they resell or are somehow involved in a business sense, they could likely be giving a false representation of said product to unaware readers.
Am I the only one who has an issue with this? Am I overreacting? It would be nice if the forum had a way to identify these affiliates, so everyone is clear on who they're talking to. Like instead of a star by their name, a dollar sign or something similar.
As a result of the above, I'm a bit more wary when reading people's positive comments on libraries, because I'm not entirely clear on their involvement with the developer, if any.
Thanks for listening..
