My personal experience: I had some of my codes shot down by others,
rewrote them, sometimes had them shot down again. Even colleagues I
consider personal friends will challenge my design decisions. And it's
always been for the better.

And if critique feels like trolling, it's perhaps because my message
wasn't understood. If an expert, or many, misunderstand me, it's
likely that my message wasn't clear. That's a lesson that can also be
learned from this review.
