That's why we now have the Critique section.... if a person has too thin of a skin to accept constructive criticism, then he or she better not post there.

Probably not within the normal definition of "constructive criticism" but it is within my definition of "helping".
Bingo! If I put something of mine in that section and one of you guys spot an issue, by all means point it out. If you know how I can improve a certain technique, then I'm all ears.

What I do NOT want to hear is "I heard about this technique for doing x, you should try that." Wrong answer. If you haven't experienced it yourself, then you really don't have any license to pass that info on.
