Gotta remember that for every loud person that complains and talks shit there's 100 quiet people who love you
@danrabbit My method is sort of reversed. If someone can't say something in a reasonable and well thought out way - chances are their criticism is irrelevant.
I am sure there are some people who loudly talk shit and complain who have a point - but in my experience the chance for that is tiny in comparison with the more probable scenario of them not having a clue of all the facts.
People who don't understand an issue are usually the ones quickest to suggest an easy solution to a complex problem.
