I can't speak for the original poster, but that criticism wasn't necessary - if anyone wants to refer to their non-viable embryos as "duds" then they should be able to freely do so. We're all going through a very tough experience and need to support each other. Everyone copes differently - Personally, I use humor. The embryos that didn't result in pregnancies were duds - they didn't work - that's the definition of a dud - I didn't catch even a hint of insensitivity in the description.
