    I don't have a lot of time or patience for negativity and bashing culture

    It's okay to say things are in a bad state without having to jump through hoops to phrase it in a positive way

      i suppose it might be. but it's all to easy to forget that you're talking to other actual people with feelings. some folks can be pretty awful online, simply because they know there's no repercussions. I wouldn't call it 'jumping through hoops'. just be decent :)

        IMO this comes across as condescending and passive aggressive. You're not wrong, but it's the way it's coming across (to me).

          lol, understandable! unfortunately that's one of the big troubles of communicating online... it's hard or difficult to express the proper tone or intent etc...

          totally wasn't trying to be condescening or snotty or whatever...

          my point mainly was I've seen plenty of negativity on other boards.... also seen aggressive behaviour and name-calling etc... along with the usual amounts of 'this sucks, or that sucks....

          one of the things i've generally liked about DesignerNews is that it's been more or less positive.... I can often find decent design links here...especially about figma, which I love...

          anyhow, hope that clears things up... :)
