Just come back from a wedding and, although feeling a little hypocritical reading UKP after such an occasion, I wanted to respond to this one!
IMHO a field report needs to be factual and should include your opinion. Don't hold back and be honest. Isn't that what a field report should be about? No one should be critical of an opinion however we should welcome opinions of others... we aren't all wired the same and should respect each other for our own likes/dislikes, fetishes and quirky bedroom fantasies!!! This world is a better place for variety. Let each of us make our own opinion based on the information provided to us.
Also remember we all have a bad day at the office... I wouldn't take a bad report completely on face value. We all get criticised at some point in our profession. I consider I'm damn good at what I do, but I also get a slating on occasions!!! I would start to be more concerned about a lady when the same story keeps being repeated.
We're not daft... opinions should be taken with a pinch of salt and should only be used as information to build up our own impression. For gods sake, none of us would ever go on holiday if we took the information from trip advisor as gospel!
Pokenn, keep your chin up, but I'm sure the comments by madeinwales were not intended to come across as patronising... I would hope!!
