In the classic film, Pirates of the Caribbean, Commodore Norrington says:
“You are without doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of. “ which was then followed by the memorable Jack Sparrow quote of, “But you have heard of me.”
This is the perfect response to anyone trying to cut you down or demean you or your work. I believe I have written about my belief that good publicity or bad publicity…it’s still publicity. It is when no one talks about you that you need worry.
Sticks and stones. 😉
