Critics Dislike Negative Reviews, Except When They Write Them
"When somebody fails to appreciate something you yourself have deeply enjoyed, it’s hard not to feel personally affronted. This isn’t logical — why should your own pleasure in something be lessened by somebody else failing to share it? — but it’s human. You may feel that your whole value system is under attack."
