We've never met, but I tend to get a lot of flak for things I say on the internet as well. Mostly I'm misquoted, and it gets really annoying, but there was a certain e-query snafu out of my office which generated a lot of negative attention. Even though I'm almost 37, and have been doing this forever, I still find it hurtful when people lash out at me. I commend you for your honesty and poise in dealing with stupid hostile people who should really think before they alienate people who are in a position to help them.
Best of luck to you!
P.S. Feel free to post this if you want….I couldn’t comment on your site because I’m not signed up with blogger.
