There's got to be a better way for business participants on PT, to express their dissatisfaction with someone, or something, rather than to just quit. Particularly, when they've invested so much time! If anything, one of the best examples experienced members can demonstrate to others, is their confidence, composure, and willingness to lean in when faced with the challenges and difficulties of disagreements, setbacks, and criticism. We all learn from these values.

But there's no drama when doing it your way.

If they want to quit, they can quit. In Dave's case it was probably the appropriate thing for him to do seeing as he didn't care for half the people here anyway. I could care less his feelings towards me. Just part of the gig and you soon learn not to take it personally.

Because this is a painters forum, I'm really not surprised of the behavior. But it sure contradicts the business/contractor platform PT represents itself as. And frankly, recent events demonstrate there are a lot more painters here than business people, or entrepreneurs in my opinion. I mean, how do you survive as a service business if you can't take criticism?

I've been belittled and pittied for my vocation for over thirty years. Yet I keep going because I won't allow others to defeat me.

There is also truth behind the old adage about counting your chickens before they hatch. Unfortunately, social media has a tendency to dismiss much of the social etiquette that prevents individuals from looking desperate and silly, in favor of encouraging every internet user to be a minor celebrity at all cost. From Twitter, facebook, instagram, to Paint Talk, there should be warnings about expressing oneself at their own risk.
