Re: How would you all respond to this "constructive criticism" of the top bar hive?
I would suggest putting a new frame of foundation beyween each of the "messed up" combs and eventually moving those messed up combs to the outside of the box. If there is a rib of comb sticking out from the face of the comb the bees will reattatcxh it to the adjacant comb.
