Comments and feedbacks

I am pretty new of the site and I am still exploring it.

I am interested mainly in the stories and I noticed how many people comment remaining Anonymous, especially when they add a bad comment.

First I would say to these people, are you afraid to tell what you think openly or you do not have the guts and prefer to hide in the dark...?

Second and this is my personal way to comment, even in my private life and at work.

I praise in public and criticize in private.

I mean, if I make a compliment I like that everybody around knows about it.
It gives something to the person receiving it, spurring him to keep on doing well.
So i would add a good comment to a story - as I did.

About critics. I give them in private, explaining the reasons to help the person to understand my point and improve. Bad comments in public do not take anything good and can only "humiliate" or annoy who receives them. In this case I would send a "private feedback" to the author and never "that was rubbish" or "I will never click on this author again in future" - as I read.

Sorry if I bored you. I am new here, as I said.

Oh my days. You're bringing ethics and consideration to a place where these things are in rare supply.

Some of those Anons won't have accounts, because they're not writing on the site. Some of them might be writers, who're having a moment. I just delete them if they're not saying anything relevant. I'm more interested in the opinions of people I know can write themselves.

But it takes time and energy to leave thoughtful commentary. If you do as you've said, then you'll be a massive asset to any authors you do provide with feedback.

I think some people don't realize that their comments will be posted anonymously unless they specifically choose otherwise.

I think I have seen there is the option to comment using the nickname or as anonymous.

What I say is that the critics is always appreciate but IMO not when I read such idiot comments that brings nothing to the cause.

and about my comments, some of the stories I like are pretty long so due to the lack of time, I just praise the author, not really going into details and pointing here and there. Just let him/her know that I enjoyed reading the story.

Even that will always be appreciated. Always. Sometimes it's like writing in an airless void. Sometimes you think you hear a tumbleweed roll past, and then think no, can't be. This is a vacuum...

Yes, but Anonymous is the default, and I think some people don't notice that.

Just did a test. Seems to default to whatever you last had it set to.

Not sure how I feel about the latest feedback I just got. 'Just, no'. I mean, harsh, mate, harsh.

Well, I prefer to avoid leaving a bad and harsh comment. I did not like a story ?
Fine, I say nothing at least in the open space. May be I tell in private but to help to improve not to "cut the author's legs".
I would feel like I am at the club and go to a girl to tell her how ugly she is and how cheap she looks.
I don't see the reason. it would not change the reality. i would not feel better and she would feel sad.

Now I go back exploring as I see the amount of material is indeed huge....

In my experience, Mr./Ms. Anonymous has been about 50/50 in posting praise and punishment. After reading their comments, I usually know if they are trying to get a reaction or not. I regret when someone posts something helpful as Anonymous, and I can't thank them, properly.

What I lament are the comments from the commenter that uses their name, telling me how shitty I am as a writer, but when I view their profile, it's empty. Show us Bill Shakespeare, before thoust cast the stone.

I have also noticed that some people leave comments in which they say they have done something they shouldn't have, and these are always anon. For instance, if somebody says something like "I fucked my daughter too, and it was great," they would not sign that.

A lot of authors post anonymously or have two profiles so they can post comments without fear of retaliation.

I don't have any experience as a writer, I just started writing 10 days ago. I'm also new to Literotica and exploring the site. I posted a story which wasn't that good but it was my first one, someone commented saying, 'it's the worst story they've ever read'. Initially I felt a little discouraged, but there other people who asked me to ignore that person and keep working on my writing. I checked the rude person's profile and they haven't written anything. I think it's easy to comment rudely on someone else's work but very difficult to express your thoughts in words. I learn something from each story I read and some of them are just amazing! I make it a point to tell that to the authors, they've worked hard and deserve to be appreciated.
I completely agree with what you said about encouraging people in public and criticizing in private.
