Ok; but simply complaining doesn't get things done.

Sorry again; I see nothing which translates as "It's your own fault...".

An analogy is probably a bad idea; but here goes:

The airline you had booked for travel to destination X, Cheapo Air, goes
bust. The travel agent offers alternative routes by land, sea and
air. Instead of saying "thank you" and accepting or not accepting one of
the offers, she is berated for not vociferously condemning Cheapo Air's
attitude and behaviour.

I see ideas being examined and criticised. I see no attacks on anyone.
