Criticism coward

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Criticism cowardice increases towards the bottom of Graham's Hierarchy of Disagreement.
Criticism is necessary.

A criticism coward (or criticism wimp) is an individual whose ability to handle criticism is poor.

Such usually reacts to legitimate criticism of their behaviour and/or work with one or more of the following: Neglect and ignorance, blocking, denial and distractions such as strawman arguments, weaponized logic-terminating buzzwords[note 1] and rhetoric tools such as argumentum ad hominem, gossip, slander[1] and possibly gaslighting, rather than rational and logical counter arguments and sincere civil discourse.

Other techniques commonly invoked by criticism cowards to evade criticism are red-herring, sophisms and rabulism.


On online forums, communities and platforms such as Reddit, users with moderative and/or administrative powers also commonly invoke hidden policies and retroactive policy tyranny to evade valid criticism.
