Exclamation Constructive Criticism?

Whatever happened to people now days accepting Constructive Criticism? I think it's just GONE now days and once there is some, everyone gets their panties up in a bunch. Feels like everyone now days just tells other people what they want to hear to make them feel better about themselves and move on. Once criticism comes up, everyone gets all defensive and insecure like they got to prove something. What is really going on with humanity now days..

Once you stop telling them what they want to hear you're automatically an ******* or mean or something... people baby each other way to damn much

I'm not talking about the forum or anything just people in general.

I totally agree, I for one think being politically correct is the same as being a coward.

Stop sugar coating things, people need to grow a pair and learn to face the truth.

This is so true and i've brought that up on this forum before. I used the example of Shankbaby. Thi guy had probly the ugliest car on the forum, so many people were bashing him about how ugly it was, and about 6 months later what do ya know. he has one of the nicest cobalts on the site.

Constructive critisim is a good thing. You tell somebody there car looks good, and "not by style but to each there own" they think oh okay this is fine, meanwhile they've got an unpainted park bench sitting on there trunk or something. its just not right.
People always say if you dont have nothing nice to say dont say anything
i say if you dont want to speak the truth dont say anything.
This is a internet website, people could handle words i think.

I agree, just imagine how it is in the military. We have kids that are not used to being disciplined either and get all butthurt when they screw up and get yelled at. The old school military discipline system is gone because the new America cannot take criticism or discipline.

I think constructive criticism should be given when asked only. Let say someone posts their latest pics of their ride , I think right there would be inappropriAte to give ur criticism since the op isn't asking for any. Now if you want to say something or give an opinion then ask. "can I say something about your car?" you know, like that. At least op would know to expect constructive criticism. If he doesn't want any then don't give any.

Stupid people rarely take constructive criticism well. They're everywhere - be it this forum, your workplace, etc.

For intelligent people, constructive criticism is nothing but welcome. A good bit of advice, even if you don't like hearing it, can bring about positive change.

I completely's pretty sad how ppl get so butthurt over others ppls opinions. I don't mind receiving constructive critcism at all. Feel free to tell me anything u don't like about my car. I'll either a) take it and learn from it or b) laugh at how much of an idiot u r, lol

I like constructive criticism. But the problem is, especially on the internet, it just turns into haters.
