  • I absolutely agree with guestd38c3f
    The comment you have posted is quite humorous as a matter of fact. What is the point that you are trying to prove, him not being in your class doesn't mean that your work is better, actually it's better for a critique to be an outside observer to see your overall work. I would also like to mention that by posting this on the internet, and not disabling comments, technically you are asking for his opinion.
    I shouldn't really waste my time on this crap presentation, and neither should anyone. So do us all a favor and remove this folly off the internet.
