    Tim, I think we all understand that showing client work without approval is not the best idea. Maybe some don't. But please don't patronize the majority of us by suggesting we're missing something. There's no example of anything anyone did wrong using Dribbble here, just some half-baked assumptions that people are using the site to display work under NDA / without permission. If "Dribble mis-use was an example" then *ahem* where exactly is that example? Sorry - I'm an active AIGA member, and I love the organization - but this article doesn't contribute much of anything, nor is it starting some grander dialogue. It's simply maligning Dribbble for creating a new way of sharing creative work. You can't malign an individual / institution in the comments, but you can in the headline?

    Steve, I'm late to the party here, but I feel the need to throw my two cents in here. You can't write a negative article like this, criticizing an innovative and new service, that at its core is about sharing creative work, without even trying the service. (http://dribbble.com/tags/steve_zelle) Please edit the article, the title even - it's not enough to just throw a comment in that no one will ever see. As you can see from the comments, the design community has already made its decision about Dribbble - people absolutely love it. It's not going to kill the professionalism of graphic design. I have yet to see any example of work being posted that shouldn't have. No one is going to steal their client's thunder. A lot of people use it to show work they're doing, for themselves. People get jobs through it. I get it, its new - and people are afraid of new things they don't understand. I also understand you weren't intentionally trying to demonize Dribbble, but you did. Please fix this :/
