I have nothing against criticism, i welcome criticism in any idea/plans how else would you be able to provide the best if everyone just agrees with your ideas?
I know sometimes people don't take well to criticism.
For someone to point out all the negatives aspects of ones argument with the intention to deflate the whole side of the argument - i would regard as bashing. I often see people do this when quoting an argument and commenting on each part. [edit] There's also the normal kind of bashing where someone resorts to commenting on your personal nature to get their point across. This is definitely bashing and unacceptable to resort to such levels to 'win' an argument.
Criticism i would regard as pointing out simple flaws in the idea rather than the whole idea. You can say the idea can work unless you change this or that rather than this and that is wrong with it - it just won't work! In such things an open-mind is required.
These are just my views on criticism and bashing.Edited by Inasense - 12 years ago

Good point.

Bashing is simply crucifying a person and her character for the simple reason of coming up with an opinion or idea. Criticism is dessecting the dea without passing judgement on the character of the person who opined it.

For me. Black is a bad movie, but if I criticise Bansali or Bachchan sr or Rani personally for messing it up, then I am attacking them for reasons other than my dislike of the content of the film. On the other hand, if I dissect the movie completely based on it's content, then that is criticism.

But how can you dissect Black without pointing out it's poor direction, poor storyline or poor acting by the lead characters? A movie can go wrong only if the direction or actors or storyline was poor.

If you point out flaws in one actor or the direction then that is constructive criticism for you but it is contsrued as bashing by the fans.

My thoughts exactly. Clap Sometimes when we analyse a person's POV or performance or whatever it is not meant to be taken personally. Criticsm is when we point out what we think is wrong, why it's wrong and how that can be rectified or in other words when we have a definite positive goal in our mind. Bashing is when we simply degrade something/ someone just because we don't like it, without giving any definite reason and definitely without any positive goal.
