Here's a question for everyone:

If you created something like a painting or a story, would you prefer that people only say that it's "brilliant", "trash", "the best they have ever seen", etc.
or that people say "I don't get this bit", "that could be better", "it's great BUT..."?

Gil-man, now it's official. You just became my idol.

Not fully Finn. Your intentions were certainly good. But maybe you went a bit blunt in the end?

Perhaps so, I admit (and apologize once more). But my irritation, I guess, arises from people who say "OMG! This is uber-fabulous!" simply because they can't write a squat or have the patience to do such thing...

Sometimes it's better to keep such things to yourself.

Maybe so. But we're all too human.

Now get back on topic.

I don't think anyone likes criticism. I think Gypsy's Kiss is worthy of publishing.

I'm sorry Finn that I had to say what I said, because I consider you a friend (and I would never think of kicking you).

I understand constructive criticism, but stating bluntly that you don't think it's worth ten cents, well, that really hurt, especially when it is something that I spent quite a lot of time and effort on.

Earlier in this thread when you were being rather blunt with your criticism, I tried to do what my Mom taught me many years ago. She taught me that when people hurt your feelings or insult you, instead of turning on them with anger, you instead try to kill them with kindness.

Well, that didn't seem to work, so I had to state my feelings.

OK, that's done, now let's move on.

No hard feelings.

the reason why I think it should be in print (no nessessarily professionally) is because it is a lot easier for some people to read lengthy texts on paper than on a screen. I don't nessessarily want to use all the ink in my own printer either.

Sure thing... but you better learn some Finnish first. And as being overly critical... not really. Just on my usual level, since I read a lot.

As for those other 'love it'-comments go ...of course it's the best thing you've ever read if it's the only thing you've ever read. (You get the idea.)

I can't speak Finnish but I like your music. Such as Sibelius: 7 symphonies...
