To me, i always respect what's other works as it's their pride.
And i believe, no one could totally understand what the pg or "artist" want to portray as we can only try our very best to understand if one is interested with the works.
but sometimes what is defined as rude and insulting varies.
if i say that i think the work is bad, some people say i am rude and insulting.
if i say that i think the work is horrible, some people say i am rude and insulting.
where do we draw the line?
if i think the work is bad, i should say that it is so, right?
if i think the work is horrible, i should say it is so right?
insulting the work, should be allowed. insulting the person, that is another matter altogether. i don't see why comments on the WORK are taken so personally sometimes, it is as if if i say that xxx photograph is really horrible the person takes it to mean that he is horrible.
eikin does it very well, i follow his example, but even then people will take comments too personally, to the point of going to my thread and posting obviously flamebaiting comments..
best part is these people not even the poster of the pictures i comment about, they just part of the group involved and feel the need to defend their comrades. anyways, that was a while ago.. must forgive and forget!
i think negative comments should be substantiated with a good starting point in mind.
