    Peter Fogg seems to have got it, at long last:


    Of course once you've created that magnum opus, a lasting testament to your carefully researched interest and a boon to all who might be interested in the subject, this unappreciative world could well amuse itself by picking your carefully constructed work to pieces.  Going through it with a fine-tooth comb and marvelling at all your mistakes.  Of such is fame.


    Criticism. That’s what furthers insights into the nature of things. Of course, that has been known in Old Europe since at least the 18th century, a time when down under there were only convicts and rabbits.
