nicole, First of all, welcome to UG. You will notice from the various threads there is a great variety of interested parties here on UG. Pretty much spans the entire range of consumers (men) and service providers (women). Given that, there are some that are particularly blunt, and there are some that will dance around without saying anything. Most, of course, fall somewhere in between. One example, as you've already seen in this thread, is there are some ladies who are offended by talk of "prostitutes and johns". There are others that have no problem with calling a spade a spade. Problems inherent in a place with such a wide range of men and women in the "hobby" are that inevitably someone becomes offended by something and nobody can agree on what's polite or not, or even what's "negative" or not. For example, you said "it's very rude and impolite to say anything "negative" about anyone". Keep in mind that you are from the "supply side". Others here, from the consumer's point of view might say it's rather offensive to pay $150 per hour and (sometimes way) up and get poor service in return. That would almost certainly (I hope) result in what you apparently consider to be a "negative" comment. OTOH, there are many of us (consumers) that crave that information and it is a large part of the reason why we are here at all. Quite a conundrum, no ?
