From the blog of Ann Friedman:

In my ongoing quest for the perfect framework for understanding haters, I created The Disapproval Matrix**. (With a deep bow to its inspiration.) This is one way to separate haterade from productive feedback. Here’s how the quadrants break down:

Critics: These are smart people who know something about your field…

Lovers: These people are invested in …

Frenemies: These people really know how to hurt you, because they know you personally or know your work pretty well…

Haters: This is your garden-variety, often anonymous troll who wants to tear down everything about you for no rational reason…
