My Wall of Shame

Wall of Shame from Sylvia Toy on Vimeo.

I was a theatre artist for 17 years – not everyone liked my work. Art is a crapshoot and if I couldn’t deal with that, I wouldn’t still be making art. I have had a few bad reviews. When I say that, I am not talking about the terse (sometimes one-liner) trolling that one sees on YouTube and Amazon. A sadistic comment made by  someone who wants me to feel like s/he stabbed me in the heart is not a review.

My response to one-star ratings & one-liner or one-word reviews of my online content:

“Thank you for adding a written review to your rating. As you probably already know, good or bad review, the more an item has been reviewed, the more potential purchasers that item has.

Best,
Sylvia Toy”
