I got my first bit of hate-email today, telling me I seem to have an opinion on everything and they are all inane. I suppose I’ll be getting more of these as my site gets more traffic and as I broadcast my opinions and questions into the world. So how do I protect my ego from this. I immediately wanted to say “Hey, sorry how did I offend you? I’ll change.” Weird! I know I won’t, for one thing, and I can’t imagine peter writing such a mail.
I can’t design my way out of paperbag, so I’m guessing I won’t reach this level of attention. Or suffer from the level of attacks zeldman is getting on MetaFilter That’s just cold!
There *is* a real human they are crushing and deifying in turn….
