As a matter of fact the ONLY emotion to bring to your business should be passion. Not the one that says you are mean because you didn`t say nice things about my site and I worked really, really hard on it.
Hmmm... the only emotion should be passion, and none other? Perhaps you have a degree in Psychology and know more about the range of emotions and their nuances than I do, but I can`t agree with blanket statements like yours. I think emotions are complicated and diverse. And, I think emotions can be an important part of the inspirational and creative process in building a business. But again, I have always advocated for balance.
No degree in psychology just an entrepreneurship teacher and an Economic Development Director for many years.
Emotions being a part of the inspiration and creative process in building a business? Sure. Emotions because of a site design when you don`t sell design services? Not a good use of emotion and certainly seems to indicate there is more passion about the site than the business. The bottom line should be "does this site work?" in a forum about site critiques. Where is the emotional attachment in that? I would feel the same way if a person responded to a site critique request with "boy do I hate that product you are trying to sell..." an equally irrelevent reply and a poor use of emotion in a website critique forum. No matter what Pkamm, I love the hat.
