I think the problem is that you aren't allowed to post review or critique requests of photos or work from another person. Though someone could check with the admins on this...
Imagine if, for the sake of argument, if this thread were full of posts like 'It's really awful!' and 'It redefines bad, I've honestly never seen worse photography in my life!' How do you think that would make the original poster feel, or the person whose photography was being commented on feel? If someone wants commentary or review of their work, it should be them asking for it on their own accord.
I will, and I know others who do this -- some photographers will use different websites for different purposes. If you don't know, you might not be linking to their preferred or best work.
