Interesting. I haven’t looked yet but if someone asks for criticism from me, then I try to give it honestly. I’d been thinking that IF I had anything negative to say then it seemed rude to do it in public. I could PM. Now @LimeBlast has done that, I feel really left out
If we ‘think out loud’ do we encourage debate or frighten people from asking for feedback? If we don’t, do we duplicate effort and prevent useful conversations? Would @limeblast have held back something if saying it in public? I don’t know.
Correction: I know what I think but I had a conversation with someone recently who said he backs away from any on-line situation where there appears to be conflict. My personal belief is that networks are stronger because of the exponential growth in number of connections between individuals and sparks of ideas can propogate through a network (because I’m a hippy?) but that will break if too many nodes close down.
