I think I'm mellowing...

...or at least being less angsty about reviewers who trash a journal manuscript. (Background: Got reviews back from a paper my professor and I submitted to $cognitive_science_journal awhile back, and the three reviewers completely went to town on it.) Now granted, in this particular case, after a careful read-through of the critiques, I found out the most egregious critiques seemed to be easily combatted. Still, this is a vast improvement over my reaction from the last time I got a trashed manuscript back.

Then: "Graaaaaaaar! Hate! Doom! This is full of suck! Stupid everything! Aaaaaaaaaarg."

Now: "Heh, feeling a bit feisty, aren't they? Time for first counterattack. :: rolls up sleeves and cracks knuckles :: "

[grin] And hurrah to you for using semicolons! (I've developed a peculiar love of them lately, and keep peppering my writings with them - much to the chagrine of my advisor, who keeps turning them all into periods.)

I guess the reviewers are anonymous, so the counterattack is not as attack-y as it could be...
