I am excited by the prospect of a properly moderated graphic design site. I have traditionally felt that the internet and graphic design discussion do not mix well.
@JohnB Encouraging to see a strong stance taken by a moderator on that "your logo is bad and you don't even know, hire a designer" response.
Something that annoys me about people who don't have a discernment, and then get it, is how freakishly often they want to lord that minor piece of awareness over others instead of making it smoother and easier for others to see what they see.
It's not just graphic design that has this problem, it's other places... But maybe the fact that one can quickly advance in graphic design knowledge makes it a place where people depending on it for income get more territorial about it.
The logo he criticized is unremarkable, sure, but everyone's a critic. It's one thing to say something is bad and quite another to put your own neck on the line and show "I think this would be better" and be specific.

@HostileFork your comment there was timely, solid and well formulated; thank you. I could not at the time reply to the poster, as I was getting a little furious :) better to let it lie for a bit then. That people make bad logos - and this is not the worst I have seen by far - is no reason for not treat them decently
