Steve I'm just saying, like it or not, that is the culture around here as I see it. That culture has developed by the members (and less through moderation) over a relatively long time as this site -when it was the i/us forums- dates from the early days of the public internet. (Back in the days when a 14.4 dial-up modem was state-of-the-art hardware). There are members here who have participated here from those early days.
Talkgraphics will continue to evolve. If members want to start offering more constructive criticism to others I'd suggest they are welcome to do so.
