There is no helpful help without commitment. It’s easy to complain or comment but it takes a personal effort to understand the problem and come up with ideas. It is another level of effort to do something about it and deliver real value. As Karl Yang says in his article: « A lot of people think they’re “adding value” by nitpicking, or supplying unsolicited takes, when they’re actually just draining energy and momentum. » Commentators’ intentions don’t align with helping the project. They take part in the conversation as a way to show off some random and useless thoughts or clock on some work without sharing the responsibility of the end result. It can be overwhelming because we leave you with a lot of fuzzy, irrelevant or contradictory information to process by yourself. Those situations can happen from spontaneous customer requests, afterthoughts clients feedback or planned colleagues review. If this happens too often then it means you might have to ignore some requests or change the way you go and ask for feedback.
