I once heard (wish I remembered where) that you need to have a certain competency with a skill in order to realize you aren't good at that skill. It's like people have blinders on and think they are amazing when people more competent look at them and shake their heads thinking how on earth could that person not realize how bad they are. So I'm guessing the people posting here asking for feedback truly feel like their work is good and don't understand why we think it's not. Then they get angry and make excuses for why they won't change things. And I'm left to wonder why they asked for feedback in the first place.
Now there are a few exceptions. Some people have benefited from the advice given here and have since produced some good stuff. I'm here for those people. I'll keep giving honest feedback. People can reject that advice or accept it just like they can put out garbage or put in the extra effort to make their work shine. I would love to help everyone, but you can't help people who aren't willing to accept that help or who don't think they need it.
Well, that's why people keep trying to help. There's always that hope. It's in our nature to search out that single light in the darkness.
