I cannot stand when people make this response. Or they say something like "why did you post knowing you would get bashed, then get mad and not be open minded and willing to change... Or open to criticism ...or why ask for advice if you weren't going to listen?"
People don't post so others can tell them how wrong they are with the decisions they're making in THEIR OWN life. Of course people should be ready for a fair amount of criticism. But being open minded and willing to change because some random interwebz idiots said so? Yeah, not so much. Even in the case of asking for advice... Who cares if the advice you've given isn't what the op wants to hear? Move on.
Sorry for the rant. It just irritates me.
