That time interesting YouTube comment discussion. Good points on either side.
On that note, I think when in doubt go with the old saying “If you don’t have something nice to say, say nothing at all.”
I’m curious what your views on constructive criticism are then? I view constructive criticism as in the end a negative reflection on someone’s work, but a negative reflection worded in a helpful and even positive manner. To be more specific in my question, do you think comments under the “constructive criticism” umbrella should not, like negative opinions, be posted on the comment sections of videos?
I’m curious because of your band analogy, because I would also never give constructive criticism to a band at their concert. However I feel fine giving constructive criticism over a forum such as the comments section of youtube videos.
