Sometimes people take themselves a little too seriously. Say they put a rude comment on someone’s blog. . .Say you have a blog, it’s your space, you should feel free here on WordPress to state your feelings and your works of art or photography, stories, etc and if someone doesn’t like it, they really don’t have to read or say something derogatory.
However, some people must think it’s their “responsibility” to point out your mistakes, lack of ideas they agree with, performance in story writing, etc. In my opinion, that’s the work of a small mind. Why even read or comment if you want to criticize in a demeaning manner?
About a year ago I had this discussion with another blogger I read a lot. He said he welcomed criticism because it made him a better writer. I understand that aspect, but why let criticism mushroom into rudeness? There’s no place here for that. JMO
