I'm not saying you cannot / should not express displeasure. My original point was targeted towards the problem whereby people are continually posting / sniping about their issues on threads that have nothing to do with that specific issue.

Hypothetical example:
Someone starts a thread about how to get a specific award on the iOS app. Someone else jumps in and comments that they should not expect any help from Kobo on this because of the problem they are having with version 1.2.3 of the firmware on their Glo, and then comment on how crap Kobo is.

The other user then goes on to do the same thing in other threads not related to the problem they have.
