I thought this article went too far and wasn't in line with the usual good quality of Drobe. The sarcasm went to a level where it came across as rather nasty and personal. As someone who is for ever correcting others, it should be no hardship for you, Peter, to accept some criticism and learn from it. To ignore the opinions of readers would be folly - after all surely Drobe should be tailored, as far as possible, to a style that people like. People like your honesty, technical know-how and up-to-dateness. A sarcastic twist is welcome, and mostly amusing. If you grandly ignore what the readers like, you won't have any, will you! It's only one hiccup - nothing to get offended about. If you accept it may have gone too far in many reader's opinion (not the opinions of Drobe staff) and treat that as a level not to reach, all is fine and dandy, isn't it. As someone whose degree was writing music, I know what it feels like to be told something isn't good that I have personally created - but the only thing for it is to go back and make improvements, or to avoid the mistakes next time.
