    I actually agree with most of what you're saying here. Which statement in particular do you believe lowers the bar? I've said a few and admittedly not all of them raise the bar.

    To be clear, I was trying to say that, although "I don't like this" is rarely useful, it can be. It's certainly more useful than saying nothing at all. Especially if it kickstarts a discussion where the person receiving the feedback can tease out more useful insights. But I agree with you that there are many better ways to give feedback.

    In the original article I try to encourage feedback of all kinds and link to other articles by smarter people than me who have given tips on how to give useful feedback. My hope is that it leads to more conversations which make both parties grow.
