    Those appear to be general discussions involving many companies; not the focused beat down that we have here.

    I know. Your question was rhetorical. I just figured I'd be quick on the response to be funny. There is a lot more negative here than positive so I try to judge a post by it's title and when I can resist...I try to steer clear of the crap.

    This is not always about beating down our company.
    In fact, I have never posted a negative word about UPS.
    I challenge anyone to find one...

    Of course there is plenty of negative here but I think most come here for information. Not with the sole intent of bitching.

    As of late I think a good portion of the crap can be attributed to the troll factor and maybe some grumpiness due to the heat or maybe I'm just being optimistic it will get better as it starts to cool down?

    Ok private American employers was more my point. We are top 10 I believe top 5. USA today just had an article on it.

    The point was who is going to start a forum for a company with 500 employees? We are a unique company that has a large number of employees spread out in many different locations.

    ​This isn't even the only site dedicated to upsers.
