Could you please phrase your comments in the form of a sentence, so
we can understand what you're attempting to say.

I admit, there's one "be" too much, id didn't notice. Speak for yourself, maybe there's some creature out there, which understood.

My opinion on this matter is, that nobody needs comments which say:"but it has a habit of doing so at the expense of things that others would
consider unacceptable.".

a) It would be practical if you'd explain which 'things' you are talking about and what makes them unacceptable in your opinion. Saying "few matters aren't good", is not helping anybody to understand your opinion, neither understand what maybe is wrong there.
It is like saying:"Black is considered unacceptable".
Reader:"What's so unacceptable about black?".

b)If i would be aware of your concerns in detail, there's no need for me to read your statement. I wouldn't even be able to know if we are talking about the same thing. So the reader might think:"Yes, black is making my pets go upside down", while the sender infact means:"black is taking all the light from my rooms".
