HELLO! .... In my pre 'retirement' days, I managed a factory ....

200 employees and 20 supervisors ....

Used to have daily meetings for 'ideas' from all ....

ONE guy ALWAYS said to ANY 'idea', "IT WON'T WORK" ....

So, I asked HIM, 'WHAT IS YOUR IDEA?" ....

He NEVER had one .....

So, one day, I bought a box of 'pencils' .... I then
took them all out and CUT OFF the ERASER on EACH END ....

Then I put them back into the box and GAVE the box TO said guy ....

When he opened the box, he was surprised and asked me,
"WHY do these have NO ERASERS on them" ....

I replied, "Because since YOU NEVER take a CHANCE on ANYTHING you'll
NEVER NEED one" ....

SMILES .... ROTL

"It is better to remain silent and be THOUGHT a FOOL
than to open one's mouth and PROVE such" ....

Hey, everyone is a critic, whether you do something or not.
Just gotta be able to separate, accept and learn the useful ones from the BS ones.

Sounds like criticism to me :P But I agree. I use this rule for criticism in most cases:
If you can't take it, don't give it.
And:
Always present it as your opinion, not as a fact.

Never try to teach pigs to sing.  It wastes your time and it annoys the pigs.

"Quant à vous, suivez Mars, ou l'Amour, ou le Prince ;
Allez, venez, courez ; demeurez en Province ;
Prenez femme, Abbaye, Emploi, Gouvernement :
Les gens en parleront, n'en doutez nullement." La Fontaine

Roughly translated:
"For your part, follow Mars or Love or the Prince
Leave, come, run; stay in the countryside
Take wife, order, job, gouvernship
People will talk, don't ever doubt it"

But that's boring!  Better to be criticized for blowing the thing up than to watch it fall on it's own!
