Customer Support at OpaVote

I'm using this blog post to expand on how you can get customer support for using OpaVote and our philosophy of customer support.

Customer support is a tricky thing. Most customers are great and a pleasure to deal with, but then there are those customers... The ones who probably spend their free time writing vitriolic comments on blog posts and news articles.
