Which shows that both are bad compromises and the good solution would be
in the middle, as mentioned several times.

If it is really impossible to give the artist the constructive feedback
about the comments voiced here, I don't see how the "goodwill" is going
to reach him either.  Have you at least _tried_ directing some of the
comments back to him or letting him read this thread?  Or is he to be
kept in the dark and we should just pick from whatever he delivers
without giving feedback?  Do you really think that this is an effective
manner of working?
