The more I cruise various photo forums, the more I realize how lacking many people are when it comes to offering criticism. My Mom, who never wore a pair of combat boots in her life--leastwise, none that I ever saw on her--is fond of saying, "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Combat boots aside, the problems with criticism on forums goes beyond rude remarks. Certainly, I've seen plenty of rude comments on forums, comments where the person making them probably should have heeded my mother's advice. Those kind of comments often resulted in flame wars, big or small. But even when comments are polite and civil, they often offer little in terms of alternative suggestions or ways to improve.

Good post, I despise mindless, insensitive, or sarcastic criticism. Truthful, tactful, and constructive.

I think a lot of that came from the same idea we had in the advertising business. The moment a person gets their first computer, they become an instant graphic designer. Same goes with someone that gets their first camera and it doesn't have to be an slr either. Shoot some pictures of the cute neighbor girl and get a model mayhem profile to post them on and there you have it. Instant photographer. These are some of the same people that are on the internet making comments on images posted by other photographers that have been at it for years who are good at what they do.
But along comes that other newby guy with an opinion and makes comments out of who knows where from that doesn't make sense, or the lurker that doesn't post his own photos but shows up to rudely tear something down. Of course we don't always know who these people are or if they have the experience or not on the comments they are giving.

We can choose to ignore some of those kinds of comments or perhaps have a little debate with that person to get them to think about what was said. Just because they have an opinion, doesn't make theirs right and yours wrong. Besides, you might know what the facts are.
