Point 2...considering that adi posted just to be told how good his recordings are, there wasn't much point in people commenting on his recordings anyway. Geniusoid was a very good guitarist but then again, he couldn't connect to anyone here since he was pretty much better than everyone else.
Also, there's only so many good things you can say about a recording. Soon, the comments become generic. If you're only going to say "well done, reps but work on recording quality" to every post out there, it makes even reading through the threads boring. Sure, be nice but don't sugarcoat your comments because that only takes focus away from things that need to be changed.
Another thing you need to know is just because you're not good enough to play a piece does not take away the right from you to comment on it. If that were so, most critics would be out of a job.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
