I realize I am making some broad generalizations here, but Thais usually do not complain to my wife or our staff, as Thailand is a culture known for its modesty and respect. While this makes it a pleasant place to live and have a family, it is absolutely detrimental to business. If a customer is pissed off about something and they take their business elsewhere, you will never know how you can improve and you just lost money. However, if a customer makes a big stink about the headphones being screwed up or Skype not having the latest update on computer #14, then you can fix it and similar other problems with your business. The customer becomes gratified that you have addressed their complaint, and they recommend their friends to you. In essence, you have to kiss a lot of ass when it comes to small business.
Some people may say that writing is an art and above all this sort of petty service provider - consumer relationship, but I don't see it that way. So, if something is messed up with my writing, I hope that someone will raise hell about it so I can adjust my technique. Both Stephen Knight and Stephen Leather have advised not to write shit, but it's helpful if you could get an idea of what readers think is "shit". If the world of e-publishing is as big a revolution as some are saying, then the only thing important is whether your readers like you or not. Nothing else matters.
I was a JO in the Navy for close to 7 years, and I am already familiar with all the sorts of abuse people can heap upon each other. So, please, feel free to be angry.
