    Other comments made by others are neither helpful nor constructive and I get paid to write teck articles elsewhere!
    I hope they vet your spelling then

    But seriously, this would be a good subject to host on a popular blog site (if you'd like a potentially wider audience).

    "Tech", not "Teck" is what Deano was likely referring to. If you're
    going to write tech articles, you need to learn how to deal with
    criticism. As a onetime professional writer myself, I can say
    unequivocally that learning to take criticism is a necessary survival
    skill.

    Dude, chill out. People are trying to give you some constructive
    feedback that you might find that rather than posting a series of
    articles as posts in a forum, you would probably do better writing them
    as blog entries.

    your thoughts should be polished and preserved.

    Yes, forums are for discussions. Blogs are, however, better suited for
    what you're writing about, and certainly better for publication.

    That's why the suggestion was being made. If you want to write a book,
    you don't publish a chapter of it at a time in a forum, because that's
    not the best venue for a publication.

    Of course, if you want to discuss what you've written, that's fine, but
    when you get feedback about what you've written (ie, "discussion"), don't
    then snap at people because they didn't like what you wrote or where you
    chose to publish it.

    The fact that you have reacted strongly to the criticism tells me that
    you really don't want a discussion, in which case, a blog is an *even
    better* place to publish what you've written. Then you have control over
    the comments that are being made and can decide whether or not to display
    comments that are critical of what you've written (not that that's a
    particularly winning strategy IMNSHO, but if you want to do that in your
    own space, then fine).

    Nice point, even nicer on-the-spot acronym .

    I have to say I find the postings disjointed, hard to understand what the OP means. I doubt it will reach a wide "audience", but then perhaps it's a niche thing, way above my level of understanding/interest.

    I have a lot of this on my own web site. It's not something I wrote, but articles I have found. A lot of the very same info the OP is referencing. Using your own site/blog whatever is much better than a forum. A forum is just asking for trouble and you really have to be open to crtism which the OP seems to not be.
