A grain of salt is a grain of salt... it matters little who

not saying that I would be able to do better, I am only
speaking of the shortcomings that I see. My models are
much worse than most of the work I have seen
out there... and deserving of the same criticism that
I may have given others!

Now, having said that, there are those that believe that
the critic's merit is only as good as long as it comes from
someone better than themselves. I say horseshit. It does
not take a perfect modeler to make an observation, huge
ego's usually make for ignorance.

But the point that I make in this thread is that I don't really
have a "off" button for my version of the truth as I see it,
and I would like to know, and perhaps tell all of you, where
I stand- some other forums are not as open, or shall I say,
"adult" rated. (Not really sure if that is because of the
membership or becuase of the host)

While I have no problem with you as you just described yourself I can only say that it's still my experience that most folks still don't want true critiquing. But having said that I acknowledge that's why there is a specific category here labeld to invite criticism and the builder has that choice right up front when he posts his work.

IMHO even some of the folks forewarned still don't want true criticism though.

Now on a different line of thought- I still invite comments and criticism of anything I post, whatever category. However if I think someone is just speaking hypothetically about how something should have been done different or anyone who wants to actually argue that I did it wrong just because it wasn't how they thought it should have been done- well, I also always reserve the right to tell them to go fuck themselves.


Oh, and I still mostly will not critique any one else's work- because after all, who the fuck am I? Just a duck.
