Woah, okay, let's all take a breath. Everyone should feel like they can share their stories on here so long as they are within the rules. Sometimes people need encouragement, and that's okay. Putting yourself out there with something creative you've done can be very difficult. Some people and some types of stories get more readers than others and that can be painful when you've put yourself out there, and I'm pretty sure it's something everyone has experienced at one time or another. Let's not get into arguments about who has readers and why, it's not fair to anyone. Real life gets in the way of people who were commenters or want to comment, or sometimes it's just not up their alley. We all have likes and dislikes.
