I am a business woman. I don't have my own business, that dream never worked out for me. I spend a great deal of my time reading about successful companies, organizations, and individuals that have been successful in private business. Many of these individuals have their dreams come true. Their own business. How rewarding. Its not easy to do. I have read a great deal about Jim Tipton. He was a creative young man who took a hobby that he loved and turned that into a wonderful business that has allowed him to earn a substantial living. I dont for one minute fault Jim with earning money from a business that he created. People do have to live and eat and if you can follow your dream and have that happen how lucky you are. Jim had a creative idea and individuals loved the site so much they were willing to become members and volunteer their time for free. They worked hard and made findagrave what it is today. For many it has been a lifesaver to find a hobby that they felt provided a service as well as enjoyment for them. Jim has had faithful members help his business grow beyond what he probably ever imagined. Jim is also said to be a wonderful husband, father and family man. He seems like he has been blessed with the American Dream. What I do not understand is how Jim can allow a company that he loves to be hurt by members that are hurtful and mean to others. These people are not just strict "guideline" followers, they are bullies, stalkers, and just mean. They think nothing of calling others names, making threats and causing pain. They cause pain to the very people who are working hard to help Jim's business continue to be a well loved site. My boss started his own business and it is like a "child" to him. He is so proud and protective. If office workers were reported over and over for years by others my boss would consider them a cancer to the company. We arent just talking about strict or even rude workers. we are not talking about competetion, We are talking about people who threaten, call people names, look up information on people and in a way threaten to "blackmail" others. I know that Jim and the other admins have to be aware of these people. Most of the complaints about the company are because of these individuals. They are driving off the very people who want to help others and represent findagrave in what I think should be Jim's image of a productive company that has the potential to reach billions of people. I just do not understand the business thinking behind allowing these individuals to hurt your company. Half of the complaints on this site would not be here if these people had been taken care of. Why would you allow your reputation and dream to be ruined by such sad people. Read through these complaints. You will find the meanest most hurtful words that you have ever read. If I were a business owner I would read these complaints so that I could improve my company. I hope Jim will read all of the complaints and see the ones that come up over and over again. I know he cares. You cant be successful unless you Care.
