    I'm wouldn't try to defend the validity of my comment, but I think baseless is the wrong word. I think "unneeded", "irrelevant" or something of the sorts is a more accurate description for this type of comment.

    And in that regard, my comment is not less or more irrelevant than "nice colors" or "cool animations", "I like it". But somehow it is accepted for people to express their fondness, not their aversion to something. What this aversion or fondness for that matter is based on, because it is not baseless as it is based on something, does not play a role in that judgement.

        It really isn't, and if you think so you haven't read much of the awful shit people say on here.

        There is nothing wrong with a simple comment that you don't like something. Is it constructive criticism? No. Does every critique need to be? No.

        It is so hard to get honest feedback on design work these days. What's so bad about someone honestly saying "Eh this isn't really for me"?

        They specifically said "personally" and this is a style that many people do love and it follows that style fairly consistently.

        What is the issue?

          i was being facetious, but in general my issue was the amount of self importance and pretentious language. it's a waste of everyones time.

          It was also a dumb criticism in the first place. by all means have an issue with something but when it's patently wrong, you've fucked up. there's nothing 'expected' about the design, if anything there's a bunch of really dumb shit happening with zero affordance. literally the opposite of what he said.

            This just strikes me as you not understanding what he meant, which is partially his fault for not being clear but not deserving of this level of drama.

            For the "brutalist" aesthetic used on the site there ARE expected aesthetic things and this site meets many of them. Expectations are not just functional ones.

            He said nothing about affordances?

              Further down I was accused of using too much language. Though I really tried to make it understandable what I am trying to say. Apparently I entirely failed at that. It’s remarkably hard to talk differentiated about such a topic in a foreign language lol.

              It seems like you did however get was I was trying to say! Thanks :P
