Thanks for the comments. People post things online without much regard for how they're taken by others. You can Google my name and website and pull up lots of really rabid sounding stuff. I try to shake it off, as otherwise it would really be overwhelming.
I have yet to see anyone point out specific problems with my writing (apart from specific errors that I correct), but there sure are lots of people who talk about generalized accusations of getting facts wrong, misstating things, and not knowing what I'm talking about. I very purposely avoid that, because people who hid behind an alias and post smack about me aren't really open to reason. Other times, people just make rather broad pronouncements without substantiation. The link has a bit of both.
