Should You Try To Win Over Your Critics?

No.  You shouldn’t give two squirts of piss about your critics.  I put crap out there.  Some love it.  Some hate it.  Good.  But do I want their opinions?  Advice?  Freakin’ feedback?  And will I so much as send an email to try and change their mind?  Nope.
