We all like to hear from the reps because they have the inside poop on their products. At the same time, we want to know when it's a rep posting about their own products, because the interest and point of view of a rep is qualitatively different from that of a non-rep who's commenting on her/his experience with the product.
A person connected with a business or product - such as a rep or employee - has no business bashing the hand that feeds them. I just can't imagine myself, as a general counsel of a consumer owned electric cooperative, posting the point of view that the cooperative form of ownership is bad. That would be personally (and for me, professionally) unethical. Thus, if one wants an unvarnished view of electric co-ops, I'm not your go-to guy. However, if you want to ask an insider about the subject, I'd be very knowledgeable.
Again, the post seemed to be a while ago, but this most likely was my point.
