Just a friendly reminder of TSW’s mission:
Our goal is to solicit broad participation from a cross-section of interests in a respectful atmosphere of mutual learning on topics related to the Forest Service and public lands policy. We believe that ideas will be stronger and choices clearer if developed through such a multidisciplinary, multi-perspective dialogue.
A wide variety of opinions on the Forest Service and public lands policy are welcome. Constructive criticism of those opinions also is welcome, as long as they do not denigrate, insult, or otherwise make personal attacks on the folks who offer such criticisms. In other words, criticize the ideas, no the person.
Here’s a good definition: “Constructive criticism is a feedback method that offers specific, actionable recommendations for change and improvement. Good constructive feedback facilitates positive outcomes and creates a positive working environment.” From “How to give and take constructive criticism,” by Maureen Obatomi.
