Authors posting sour blogs about reader comments, about voting scores, about story or plot complaints.
Is it me or is there a rise in the number of authors determined to egg on their detractors?
Is complaining about them in a blog, letting them know they are getting to you, a valid strategy?
I think it is encouraging those determined to be insulting. I think they would love to learn they hurt your feelings and may even escalate to see if they can get another response.
Try to pull out anything that might be constructive criticism and ignore the rest, that's my take on it...
