Gee. I Got Criticized AND Muted For Saying Thank You

What next?

I received a note from a writer on Medium, dumping on me because I thanked her for reading one of my stories. Imagine. Being criticized for being polite! And, she has now muted me. My writing career is over :)

What next? Being criticized for being kind? Was my mother wrong when she taught me to be polite and respectful and gracious?
