Recently, I was involved in a game where I had less enjoyment than I might like, and offered some criticisms. The person who was game mastering seemed to take it in stride at the time, but later fired back on the internet, indicating that they took it personally.
I see variations on this time and time again- someone gets offended because someone else doesn’t like their ideas, or someone is afraid to speak their mind for fear of alienating their friends.
Come on. We are all smart, well adjusted adults, and if we aren’t, it’s high time we started. Two perfectly intelligent people that are friends can have differences of opionion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this.
If I’m at your table, watch out. I’ll let you know what I’m thinking. You deserve an honest criticism.
