IMHO no judge (snarky or not) should be taking points OFF and no  
entrant should consider their entry so perfect that marks are being  
taken from them.
A good judging rubric should build from zero not deduct from 100 (or  
whatever the top score could be).
If you approach it this way perhaps the judges will seem less snarky.
And in the end it is a necessary evil to differentiate between  
entries and find a "winner".



Food is life. May the plenty that graces your table truly be a VAST
