I've been quiet recently in the forum. This allows me to put my finger on what I, personally, get annoyed with by this thread (instead of just asking myself "I wonder if they mean me?"). If someone has a critique of me, I want to know it up-front so I can assess the critique and accept/work on or dismiss it. I understand why that isn't done: it would breed unseemly conflicts in many cases (I'm not immune to becoming irritated and over-defensive), but, dammit, how I am supposed to improve myself when I don't know what others feel is in need of improving!
Naturally, this would also only apply to people level-headed enough to express worthwhile criticism, even if it is presented aggressively.
I think the majority of you are thankfully level-headed whom can present worthwhile criticisms, hence the previous comment. After all, we can I think all agree this place has a bit more civility than a string of YouTube comments (though, ironically, that and the strong intensity of the community that makes this place so appealing also makes it daunting)
