Guys, I think you all are being too hard on Doug.  Let me quote this part
of article I recently came across at Undeadly:

"When people actually care about something, they tend to have strong
opinions.  When you are wrong, you hear about it, very directly and in no
uncertain terms.  Absolutely no one is given special treatment.  You have
a choice between being offended and leaving, or appreciating the
criticism and trying to do better.  The people who get offended are the
ones who have missed the obvious; another person just gave you their
time in writing out their opinion and correction.  They may have skipped
showering you with sunshine, rainbows and ponies, but how you feel is
unimportant.  The thing that matters is the thing they care about, the
best way to do it."


That said, I wish we all grow a thiker skin and start actually value the
criticism like we did in the old days.
