Good and bad reviews

This morning I got a scathing email about The Perl Review, mostly because the guy doesn't realize I'm not CMP (publishers of the other Perl magazine, The Perl Journal) and it's just me and a handful of volunteers. I felt pretty bad about that until lunch time. I should take cues from my opera-singing wife. She ignores the occasional bad review.
Then I discovered, through Google Alerts, that G. Wade Johnson had said something nice about our little magazine:
It contains good, solid information about solving problems with Perl. Unlike many magazines, it does not take itself too seriously. This combination of useful information and light-hearted attitude makes it a joy to read.
I think that cancels out any three bad emails.
Credit where credit is due
I'm glad I was able to pay back some of the good the Perl Review has done me in the past few months.
