We have a new donut shop in town -- bismarks and chocolate covered eclairs....

But to yank this thread back on topic, yes, we do need to be a bit more circumspect when we disagree with someone's ideas. It is possible to be respectful and disagree. Criticism is better when it's constructive rather than "you're an idiot for thinking that way". I can see AlphaWolf's point -- sometimes we 'read' harsher than we mean to, and that can be intimidating for some folks.

Oooh, definitely. I love them too, them and chocolate frosting-- and I am still a kid....well at least that's what many people tell me.
Oh yes, chocolate frosted donuts.. I think we changed the subject of this thread to admiring the amazingness of donuts ;) Anyways, I think it's always nice to have some constructive criticism. I like having someone add on or try to improve to some of my ideas.

It's when someone forgoes the constructiveness and just goes for criticism that I have a problem.
