    I think its human nature is to criticize others. Personally I prefer to focus on the things a person does well and not on the things they do not.

    I cannot stand when someone puts another person down unnecessarily...especially when its someone who can't or won't defend themselves. I find it incredibly immature and unnecessary. The need to attack another simply to see them bleed is incomprehensible in my book.
