Anytime I see some post
‘This designer is lazy!’ ‘No work ethic!’ Etc. I know that poster isn’t someone worth paying attention to.
I personally find describing designers who did something in a way you didn't want them to as "lazy" or "stupid" to be pretty obnoxious; I think it's important to try to criticise the work, not personally insult the creator.
When you call people names behind their backs, you are saying more about yourself than about anyone else.
There was a pretty good video flying around the Internet a few years ago from Ze Frank. It was called "An Invocation for Beginners" or something like that, and it had a line in it that I thought was pretty good. So good that I memorized it, in fact. "Let me remember that the impact of criticism is often not the intent of the critic, but when the intent is evil, that's what the block button is for."
, and others in this thread are right--not every opinion is worth your consideration. When I'm reading opinions on the Internet, I'll sometimes stop in mid-sentence and just scroll away when people get crass and off-topic like that. Because people know when they are being crass and when they aren't, and yes, it IS
off-topic, unless the title of the thread is "Let's Talk About Someone We've Never Met."
