The I. It's his criticism, not an objective truth. I mean correct me if I'm wrong @twilifalchion then do clarify things, but I think someone saying that it is their criticism means it's something that they personally find. Same for Samz. And while I'm at it I might as well point out how this is the unpopular opinions thread, everything should be taken, by default, to be an opinion. Someone who believes differently to you isn't necessarily, and I would even go so far as to say rarely, is suggesting that you are fundamentally wrong for holding an opinion. I’m not saying someone is wrong for holding an opinion but when you make a critique regardless of what it is. It is an argumentative claim whether you like it or not. Cause that’s just something inherent to criticism. You can’t point out a flaw without actually point out said flaw like you need to actually prove that the flaw exists in order to criticize it that’s just how criticism works. If that’s not the very definition of criticism, then I don’t what is. I’m just saying those flaws aren’t actually flaws and therefore not proper criticism Edited May 26, 2020 by Ottservia Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
