Hello all, newby here. I mean no offense or disrespect to any members but curiousity has gotten the better of me. I have been on other sites, not as good as this, for some time and there is something that happens here, ALL THE TIME, that I have not encountered (to this extent). Members defending their work. Someone makes a crit and the postee(?) then replies, sometimes at length, to that crit. Is this sop here? When someone crits my work I say 'thank you' and move on. Not trying to upset anyone. Just curious.
