But that isn't what happens here...

Sometimes the problem with criticism is that, as presented here, is nothing but negativity.

usually, all we get is, "hey great shot".

There is something to be said about balancing the negatives with the positives. I used to train new attorneys in trial practice. If I only told them what sucked they would probably all be contract attorneys now.

Imagine if your associate just had his head handed to him by the Judge in over ruling a motion and you leaned next to him and said, "hey, great job-the Judge is full of ", and that is all you ever did?

What would those attorneys be doing now?

Also, heaping on criticism, one complaint after another, is never a good path. One problem at a time, right?

You have to tell people when they are wrong.

too many on this forum not only aren't willing to do that, they go to the other extreme......always.

Tedolph, RIP
