Do you ever feel the need to bite your tongue when it comes to responding to FF'rs (or BF'rs)?

Have you ever had a situation where you wanted to say something to a formula feeder (or brreastfeeder) about formula or breastfeeding but decided it would not be well recieved so you resisted the urge?
Some examples from my own experience:
* Resisting the urg to tell a mother on Youtube that FF'ing that formula is really not just as good or close enough to BF'ing as she claimed.or
* Resistanting the urge to tell a mother who was weaning herchild at a year that ext. BF'ing does have benefits
* Resisting the urge to tell a mother who quit BF'ing to treat PPD at her doctors insistance that her doctor was likely wrong about not being able to treat the PPD without her quitting breastfeeding.
* Manu instances IRL where I resisted the urge to disagree with a FF'ing mothers incorrect statements about BF'ing vs formula.
In all the above situations I decided that the my comments/advice would not have been well recieved and would not likely have accomplished anything positive thus I chose to remain mum. I feel it's important that BF advocates learn when the advocacy, info,
