I agree with you, I was mainly talking about these comments:</p>
"Cute, but not helpful for me since those are very beginner level cupcakes." - was that necessary??
"Are you kidding me?! And this is a tutorial?" - was that necessary??.</p>
and she is not the only one who is treated to this type of commentary, I've seen it on plenty of other post. My point was geared more towards the type of feedback given, I'm all for constructive criticism and feedback like someone else said that's how we learn but there is a way to do it and those comments along with others are not the way. </p>
There are a few here who have the mentality "you asked for it so I'm going to give it to you straight" really?? is that they way to build up confidence in people and make them want to improve?? There are young teenagers/adults who come on this forum who are just starting out and have dreams of becoming bakers and decorators how do you think those kind of comments make them feel about pursuing their dreams? And even if it's not a child and it's an adult who is just starting out how do you think that makes them feel? You don't know what goes on in peoples lives, they come on here seeking a little help and encouragement and instead are treated to this type of negativity, sarcasm and sometimes outright meanness. And we wonder why the world is the way it is. All I'm saying is a little kindness goes a long way even if it's concerning "constructive criticism".
