Koan #12

I ran across a tweet from Jared Spool where he stated he sometimes receives critiques of websites or applications from other designers. You can probably imagine someone like him receiving an in-depth critique of some site like Facebook or Amazon where the designer tears it down bit by bit. He ended his tweet by stating he feels this is unprofessional.
