I am starting this topic as I seem at odds with a number of people on the concept of fairness.
There are two purposes it seems for this forum.
The assist people with software and hardware issues, note here there are localised #fairphoneangel who may assist.
Responding to peoples complaints about how badly they have been treated by Fairphone with a ‘c**p’ phone.
The second point becomes more of an issue with many people ~ and the actual Fairness in the way the mineral and factory workers seems trivial.
Sure if the phone doesn’t live up to your expectations there’s no harm in communication with Fairphone, they want to know, they want to improve, they want to run a successful business.
But using this forum complain about Fairphone, slagging them off and generally whinging, clouds over the idea of fairness which I imagine is at the root of the notion to buy in the first place.
Now I get to the point where the support is for a lot of those disenchanted people feeling hard done by and want to voice their emotional disturbance.
I get it, I am emotional disturbed, and it is also true I find others’ actions disturbing, but not as much as my own.
So it’s nice to build a picture, a gang or gaggle of like minded upset individuals, as it’s far easier to hide my own failings whilst I’m trying to hold others responsible for their actions. It’s easy to look outside my own intellect at the environment and see it wasting away, but it’s not.
Each of us has the ability to take full responsibility for everything we do, say, see or feel, let alone the silly phones we buy.
So yes complain as much as you like about Fairphone, but I will not support such irresponsible chatter, but I will respond to those people who clearly want emotional support, if I am able, but I won’t be blaming Fairphone for any unhappiness.
