    Really bummed about this Peeple thing. Both the app itself AND the response to it.

  3. @digiphile I just looked at the hashtag. Tremendous lack of empathy all around.

    @digiphile the concept is poorly-executed & site copy tone-deaf, but it's akin to sharing blocklists + LinkedIn endorsements.

    @digiphile plenty of my friends (esp women) privately share "watch out, this is a bad dude" advice in work & life

  4. @ginatrapani The activity off-line feels like something people in communities do. Seems super hard to do it online with empathy & fairness.

    @digiphile it's the gleeful harassment of the founders + "how could anyone have ever thought this was a good idea" that's annoying me.

  6. @ginatrapani has anyone done better? Have you thought about tackling this? If you did, how would you approach it?

  7. @digiphile beside Gawker-style takedowns, shared blocklists, whispered "watch outs", an email to a friend "should I work with this person?"

    @digiphile it hasn't been cracked. Haven't worked on sharing negative reviews, but @makerbase will have something like endorsements

    @digiphile I guess @makerbase has a way to "flag" a user, but it's all handled behind-the-scenes

  8. @ginatrapani thank you for that; I poked around a bit earlier this year and this AM. Products & services look easier than relationships.

  9. @digiphile of course! my point was both to self-promote :) & also demonstrate: anyone can say anything about anyone on the internet.

    You might be able to see it if you sign in with Twitter.

  11. @_danilo fine to criticize a poorly thought-out app, but I was uncomfortable with the pitchforks.

    @_danilo I'm personally more forgiving of cluelessness (due to youth or inexperience) than maliciousness, and that's what I think this is
