Don't go wild and add everyone you know to your new email list... there are rules and laws around this practice and you could find yourself in receipt of a huge fine... and I mean HUGE!
Hearing your own work critiqued can lead to a knee-jerk reaction filled with defensive indignation. Others obviously didn't understand. You start to explain and try to bring them to a point of agreement, but it doesn't happen. You view the person doing the critique as an idiot--unworthy of being in the same room with your genius and a total waste of your time.
