    Can you ever complete a "mission" in life without getting critised?? like for instance... getting into a relationship??
    ... talking to someone on the net to whom you may be fond of??
    ... work and play??
    ... school??

    everything we do can be critised but if we're happy with it should people be able to critise?? any of the things above and you can all critise them on here, but should it be directed at someone directly or indirectly??

    Critisim is fundamental to free speech, isn't it?

    If I enjoy doing something, I don't give a damn what other people say about it (unless it's constructive critisim). Critisims are simply other people's negative opinions.

    we are truly kindred spirits, JPJ, that quote has always been one of my favourites

    Littleredfrog - i researched and wrote an article about this very topic a while ago...in New Zealand it's what's referred to as 'Tall Poppy Syndrome' --->that is, the desire to belittle achievements and the achievers themselves. Quite sad really, and a reflection of inherent human insecurity.
