Even in macrame done in private for home use, there will eventually
appear a critic who will disagree with your choices of material, colors,
knots, design, and will consider your workmanship unworthy of allowed to
being seen. No matter whether you are the worlds most expert or the most
rank of beginner. Someone will judge you as you are the most super of
macrame artists while they are not capable of completing a project
without loss of much blood or even fingers.
And that same personality, without knowledge of the radio, has an
opinion that is not expressible in terms other than the most derogatory
because that person can't turn the radio on even if helped. Though any
such help would not be accepted.
