It has a lot to do with context more than "just the facts mam". In terms of promotion (of any sort) manners evolved in part) to help.
If we want people to like our things (Events, Media whatever) and get them to check out what we like we have to try and not shit on THEIR things at least not in public, " oh well that sucks but here... come check this out." Gonna end badly for our goals over time <--- over time. (to spread the word about an event we'd like people to come to for instance)
For some this is hard, but really it's a very good basic social skill. One that is well mastered.
Me I'm a sarcastic politically incorrect bastard... but in the right context or at least that's the goal. Alienating our key people just doesn't keep society moving well nor get it moving the way we'd like it to when its time to try and create change. People have memories (not that they are always very accurate).
Hey everybody I'm running this event come to it please! (but wait half of them I've already alienated.. shit.. this isn't going to work as well as I thought)... That spills over into our associates too, If I want someone to back me on something, but half the people that know of me know me as a jerk (as an example) it reflects badly on the people backing me, not just me. So If i ask for help, and my reputation is mixed, the help i'm going to get is going to be even worse than mixed. (Not that we can always help it)
Now if they think badly of me for no real reason.. that's on them. But basic manners is just an evolved concept and one thing it does is differentiate unreasonable dislike from reasonable dislike.
Want someone to help with something? Shit on what they want a bunch (not that you did that really just an exaggerated example to make a point) then say HEY come to this thing I'm doing it's cool, come! Tell your friends! (unlikely).
I always wanted a telescope when I was young. I was always fascinated with what was going on up there, I'd just lay in the grass and try and figure out what shapes I saw in the clouds and stuff like that.
*Actually I probably was trying to see if God was really up there walking around on the clouds and watching us like my grandma and the Sunday school teacher told me.😇😈
