This topic puts me in mind of the concept of 'right speech' in Buddhism.

Sounds like #3 under "The criteria for deciding what is worth saying"
" "In the case of words that the Tathagata knows to be factual, true,
beneficial, but unendearing & disagreeable to others, he has a sense of the
proper time for saying them."
Handy, no? Don't ask me what a tathagata is.
