Oh for the love of god.
Criticism: the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.
Critique: a detailed analysis and assessment of something, esp. a literary, philosophical, or political theory.
Criticism also has another definition, number 2 in my dictionary, which means Critique. That definition doesn't apply to your cute little lecture on my mean behavior. The definition that DOES apply is definition 1, in my dictionary, which is quoted above, and which does not mean critique.
And now I am going to stop splitting these stupid semantic hairs with yet another person who clearly just wants to pick a fight.
Yup, that sums it up nicely. I use your words verbatim to show the absurdity of your statements, and then you split hairs and raise irrelevant semantic quibbles. You’re the one who edited your reply to raise a silly, irrelevant critique/criticism distinction. What was your point in doing so?
Even so, you’re still semantic hair splitting and yet again wrong (deceptive) about the meaning of those words.
“Definition of CRITIQUE: an act of criticizing” (Note this is the first, primary definition) http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/critique
Cherry picking a narrower, secondary definition of critique just to make a silly point is dishonest and, well, silly.
Also, you accuse me of just wanting to pick a fight, but of course you’re haven’t considered that the same could be said about you? Give me a break. Such an accusation appears to be just a way to get out from answering some uncomfortable, direct questions, and defending your comments in a rational manner.
Moreover, you still haven’t said who you were referring to as the only person lately who's had much of a problem accepting negative critique. Could it be that you meant RG, but after I noted your problem accepting criticism, you changed your statement to mean just critiques of posted photos (as if that really makes any difference), and then realized your problem with him was not about photos he posted? If I’m wrong, just tell us who you meant.
