Buck up, don't take it so personally, ignore it, and move on. Either that or create a personal blog, where it is just you and your thoughts, and don't allow any comments (because, again, eventually you are guaranteed to get SOME criticism).
Could not agree more! Look what happened as a result of one (maybe two or three...) mistakes I made- first one allowing one of my crew to attach a camera to the stern rail for one of our Wednesday night races, then posts it on you-know-where:

Olson 30's are built pretty darn tough. - Sailing Anarchy - Sailing Anarchy Forums

I think there is definitely entertainment value to the discussion, but I have to admit, my self confidence went into the toilet for a while... and I'm really not that bad of a sailor. I just hadn't been in this position before and made one bad tactical decision for a number of reasons. Good thing a lot of people came to my rescue!

As JaredC stated, enjoy!
