[at-l] Fw: Appalachian Trail Thru-hikers' Companion

Thank you for your comments.  I was only trying to get some suggestions on
what I should do about this.  I
therefore posted publicly on a HIKER forum, so that hikers could give me
feedback.  I was not trying
to paint JohnO into a corner.  I 'm fully aware that we will not be capable
to please everyone who visits our
establishment.  However, for someone to threaten to remove our listing from
the Companion, based on some
complaints, with no examples, etc. to me was not appropriate.  I feel I
should have at least been offered more
information as to what, who and when these complaints were made.  I also
find it rather ironic, that the majority
of our Thru-Hiker traffic is in March, April and May, yet I was never
notified of any complaints until now.
I can't correct any complaints if we don't know what the complaints were.
