I'll agree to disagree. Here's why - It's a big difference to request someone to not comment because that's what "you need" vs doing something to make "them" feel like they did something wrong by trying to make them uncomfortable just to get the same response.
However, if you like, my quote was a huge exaggeration (I agree, that specific quote SHOULD get copious amounts of mockery) - a direct comment like "I appreciate that, but it's not really a nice shot from what I'm used to" is usually enough to get the message across without glaring. Compare it to essentially "nice shot? are you kidding? what the **** do you know?"
Most of the 'bitch session' gripes I see on these threads are a bunch of people mad because others can't read their minds and act accordingly. Cripes, people, just speak up and stop stewing.
I look at the "shot" vs. "Good shot" issue more like the difference between the cool guy that everybody wants to play with and the not so cool guy that gets left out but nobody quite knows why. The more carried away the not so cool guy is the less we like him.
I know one guy that seems like a very nice guy that tries very hard to be likable (too hard) and his constant over-emphasizing of "Great shot", even on shots that we don't like at all, gets old very quickly.
