    Ben, perhaps you should have a 1 to 5 star rating for the pre sales response level that you have been experiencing for every review that you post.

    It would be nice to see such ‘real world’ scores against each product, as I believe with accounting systems especially, you want to know that the vendor is totally committed to the customer.

    Devan – that’s a really good idea but it’d probably be unfair to the products I’ve already reviewed to start it at this stage. I’ll give it some thought though

    I can’t believe some PR folks still behave this way! They spend ages “crafting” a message they hope you will find appealing enough to give a mention to. They most likely leave a comment at the end of their e-mails, telling you to get in touch if they have any questions or need further information. But, what they really want is for you to copy and paste what they wrote to you, close the e-mail and forget about them until they next time they have news for you.

    It’s really uncool.
