Been in the business for HOW MANY years now and I still forget the primary rule: don't ever fucking respond to the reviews of one's own work, even when it's clear the reviewer has an axe to grind.
I had a response all ready to go and a friend had to talk me off the ledge. Responding, either positively or negatively, is a trap. Don't do it.
