I think one mistake we are both making, FD, is speaking on behalf of everybody.

That's where the conflict comes from.

I will refrain from that from this moment on and just speak for myself, and seeing I have spoken at length, you know how I personally feel and have little else left to say.

You can continue to generalize about how everyone feels about "friends vs strangers in regards critiquing," if you want, but really these thoughts are just how you feel personally about the subject, whether you care to admit that or not, not really about how everyone feels about "strangers vs friends in regards critiquing" at all.

I imagine there's quite of variety of feelings on the subject, based on one's life experience. Your life experience leads you to your beliefs, I mine.

Let's both stop being presumptuous, okay? All I really know is my experience and I have conveyed that at length to you.
