I've been looking through some of the critiques in the Workshop, and in my opinion, some people seem to go a bit overboard when critiquing. Some pieces are essentially being rewritten so that original style and voice are lost. This is the exact opposite of what I think the critiquing process should be about. The goal is to bring out the style and voice of the author. If you rephrase and restructure every single line, the piece loses its individuality. Again, this is just my personal opinion. Thoughts? Comments?
