And I thought _I_ was bad at handling rejection slips.

I'm the first to admit that I don't handle rejection slips well. I require copious amounts of chocolate and sulking, since, no matter how many times I tell myself not to take it personally, I do. I'm also the first to admit that I don't handle bad reviews well either.

But this person leaves me far behind.

(If you don't want to click through, and for some of you, this may be triggery: a brief summary: Steve Berman, aka mroctober wrote a somewhat negative review of a story by Kevin W. Reardon/Cole Adams. Reardon first complained in an email, and then started telling Steve Berman to kill himself. Bonus negatives for telling Mr. Berman to kill his cat on the way.)

Thanks, I guess, to rhfay, nihilistic_kid and others for the links.
