Perhaps you, Dick, by refusing to give reasons ;) ? I am sometimes critical, which is the opposite of snobbish, as I tried to elaborate. Sometimes I cannot help sounding patronizing, against my intention, like most Mudcat posters; this is due to the forces of brevity.
Pointing out non-optimal aspects of existing songs is not an end in itself, but necessary in order to improve our understanding in general, and to encourage good practice in the future. You are welcome to disagree - please mention your reasons, if possible.
