Be nice. There is too much icky in the world as it is. This is not the place for more of that. As your mamma told you- If you can’t say constructive in a positive way, don’t say anything at all. Ok. So, maybe that’s my take on what she said. You get the idea. I’m all for a good honest discussion, but I’m not for tearing anyone down. Ever.
