How to deal with harsh critics

I’ve been published since 1999. And during that time I’ve had some truly bad reviews. One from the LA Times for my first book (the reviewer much preferred a book where the mystery was solved by cats). And I remember one from the San Fransisco Chronicle, for what was probably my best-reviewed book ever, that I read twice. Once gasping in horror, once wincing while thinking there was surely something, anything, that could be salvaged. (There was not. Not one single word.)

An author has come up with a clever way to mess with harsh critics that does not involve pipe bombs or name calling.
