Loose Cannons & Boys Who Cry Wolf

question mark illustration
I'm extra busy today, so I'll keep this short by simply posing a couple of questions to discuss.

1. What is the difference between an effective advocate and a "loose cannon"?

2. When you meet someone who always seems to be complaining, how do you know when they are really onto something valid, and when they are just "crying wolf"?

Why don't you define "complaint" or complaining...for the purposes of this discussion? As they say...all is in the eyes of the beholder.

And, then, maybe a definition of "always" would be in order as well.

I should have written it as "always complaining", to make clear that this is the kind of thing that people often say about advocates when they don't recognize the difference between complaint and advocacy. I'm not sure how to define complaint. It IS in the eye of the beholder, which is kind of what I'm getting at.
