Any positive, forward-going opinion on how to improve a given area, can also be viewed as what you describe as being a complainer.

As far as I can tell, people tell between complainer and positive thinker in the following algorithm:
Is it a manager? --> positive thinker
If not a manager- Is the person at least remotely attractive? --> positive thinker
Anyone else --> complainer

I love Scott Adams. He speaks to the cognescenti in coded messages like this.

I remember being truly shocked when co-worker, and a friend, told me that I was a 'complainer.' My argument to him was that I was correct in my complaints and that my criticism was accurate, justified, and deserved. He said that I usually WAS right but that didn't mean I wasn't a complainer. And, quite honestly, I still have trouble understanding that.

The truth is like the sun, you can't stare directly into it.

I don't remember where I heard it:

"A cynic is someone who knows the cost of everything and the value of nothing."
