 absolutely, and this is one thing that a lot of people are, sadly,
 trained pretty much from birth to be incapable of understanding:
 namely the difference between criticism of the PERSON and criticism
 of the ACTION.

 (2) "That was a BAD thing to do!"
 (3) "That hurt my feelings that you did that"

 the first is the way that poorly-trained parents and kindergarten
 teachers talk to children.

 the second is... only marginally better, but it's a start

 the third is how UNICEF trains teachers to treat children as human beings.

 absolutely.  it's not about the code, it's always, *always* about people.
 we just happen to be writing code, but ultimately we are doing so in the
 service of other PEOPLE.
