A lot of newer (and not so newer) monks seem to be losing their sense of perspective when taking criticism from this site.

Lately, a lot of posts have been taken far more negatively than I, and many others (I believe), believe warranted.

Everyone, please, take what you can from the responses you receive from your posts. Don't disregard a message because you feel the tone is harsh, or the font may be overly large, or someone questions why you chose a particular method. These responses are not usually meant to inflame. These responses are generally valid points that may be helpful.

In short, don't lose sight of the message for the words, and don't lose sight of the programming for the code, or the "helpful" criticism you may receive.
