Not Enough Praise

Just wanted to give a little props to Sam for all the great work he does. Seems like people always have questions or problems...no one ever compliments the work it takes to keep a site of this magnitude up and running - and keeping up with the customer service side of things too. My Newsblur on my work PC is open all day from 9-5, and it is RARELY down or not working properly. If something is wrong, it's fixed asap. Premium should be the only option, I've been happy with paying to keep this Sam & this site going. Keep up with the great work Sam!!

Same here; I practically live in newsblur, and I don't think I could count hiccups on one hand, let alone two. And it's getting better feature-wise the whole time. Well worth the price!

Google killing Reader was the best thing to happen to my RSS feed now that I have NewsBlur.

Yeah Sam!
He's the website designer and tech support and everything and still manages to be totally professional. I don't know how he does it all and he deserves all admiration.

Yes, huge props to Sam. But shouldn't this thread be under "Problem"?

@Bruce I did consider that, but I thought the green heart praise symbol looked better then another red triangle problem symbol in the thread topics....

@llg. Yes, good thinking; you're right on target. I meant my comment more as humor than reality. Perhaps I should've added a wink ;)
Sam works tremendously hard on Newsblur and deserves as much thanks and praise as possible. Yes, it does have some quirks but in my opinion, the best (and best supported) news reader out there.

I agree, more praise is meritted. I spend more time looking at NewsBlur than any other site/app/property. It's a great app/site at a fair price. I love it.
