>Unlike my life as a professional artist on training, where everything I chose to do is discussed and criticised, and I get ulcerated to no end.
Such is the hazard of the real world, where people have to criticize and demean every little thing to save face in their own minds. Here, on the internet, on this anonymous board, we have no egos to satiate, no face to save. Honesty comes more naturally when there is nothing to lose from it.
We appreciate what you do because A) you take the time out of your day to satiate the wants of random people for nothing in return, and B) you do it well. We are honest in our appreciation because, well...why wouldn't we be? What do we have to gain for anything short of constructive criticism at worst?
That is why we appreciate what you do, and why it isn't as bad as the real world - we have nothing to lose by telling you straight-up.
