Does this mean we cannot make constructive criticism/suggestions?
"Constructive" criticism (which by its very definition "builds up" by including helpful suggestions for improvement) is perfectly fine -- going into a public forum guns blazing and completely venting your spleen about how furious you are, how wrong-headed the whole mess is, and how the company is screwing themselves is another matter entirely. It's possible to discuss problems, concerns and disagreements in a civil manner without degenerating into personal attacks and mudslinging.

Went to consult a dictionary for the exact meaning, and to disparage means to belittle, or to speak of something with contempt. Simply disagreeing with something and saying so is not disparaging.
