    A good anti-lesson Darkkin I benefit most from forthright critique of material offered up, and from exemplifying points to help me understand better. A telling attitude of decreeing by self proclaimed exerts though, brings to mind:

    "Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods." -- Albert Einstein

    In other words they're diminishing themselves in other's eyes, at least other's eyes that aren't cowed.

    I think good critiquing boils down to tolerance, respectfulness, and genuinely trying to help. Not to mention such helps to pave many of life's paths.

    Thank you for posting the video.

    Just my two cents. I've been on forums that would rip you to pieces, tear you down and make you just want to feel useless as a poet or writer of any form, of course that has been years ago. I feel that you should strive to find the good and offer constructive criticism in an effort to keep the passion within the writer and to help guide their thinking of better concepts, different perspectives as well as respect their work as it is their work (emotion more than likely) driving their works.

    There are some really great people willing to mentor here. I’ve been very fortunate to have several.
