Blogs let you post a comment but you never know if the recipient has read it
Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) June 6, 2008
Practically everyone has been in a position where they've wanted to speak the truth but couldn't find the courage or didn't know the right words to say. Now, with a new website called Redtoll.com (http://www.redtoll.com), people everywhere can log on, enter someone's e-mail address, and send an anonymous comment. No longer must people keep quiet about a friend with an unpleasant habit, put up silently with sexist coworkers, or resist paying a compliment. With Redtoll.com, people can speak the truth, confidentially resolving issues or expressing thoughts they would not otherwise make known.
"This website is a conflict-resolution and communication tool that provides an avenue to fix problems without having the fear of appearing confrontational, embarrassed or uncomfortable," says Redtoll.com's founder. "Many people are very reserved and struggle to voice their thoughts, and so they keep them bottled up inside. You can't expect everyone to develop perfect communication skills overnight, so this website gives them a way to reach out anonymously."
Redtoll.com lets people "Redtoll," or post comments that they don't want to deliver in person. The site offers two ways to Redtoll: publicly and privately. A Private Redtoll is meant strictly for the recipient. Once a comment is posted, the recipient will be sent a Redtoll e-mail alert. The recipient won't know who the sender is and must view the comment at Redtoll.com. On viewing, the recipient can delete or respond to the comment.
Anyone who searches for and finds comments that were posted as "Public Redtolls" can view a Public Redtoll. If the sender provides the recipient's e-mail address, the recipient will be sent a Redtoll e-mail alert. Unlike Private Redtolls, the recipient cannot delete a Public Redtoll but may respond to it. An online version of a physical "comment box," Redtoll.com is a completely innovative communication concept.
"Blogs let you post a comment but you never know if the recipient has read it," Redtoll.com's founder says. "Facebook allows you to place an anonymous comment on a friend's page, provided the friend has the required application. Redtoll.com is unique: It allows you to post a helpful comment about anyone or anything, and the status of its receipt is verifiable."
Redtolling is all about commenting to make a situation better, not worse, and all Redtollers are encouraged to avoid mean-spirited remarks, using humor whenever possible. Of note, Redtoll recipients can reply to Redtollers and develop a dialogue, while anonymity remains protected -- the secret to this service's success.
