All feedback / answers have to be "taken with a grain of salt".
I've had to develop very thick skin because I post a lot of questions on StackOverflow and most of the time they are down-voted, answer incorrectly etc.

Check out this one which the person answered completely wrong and tried to say I was wrong[^].

In the end, I discovered the answer myself and wrote it up for myself.

I actually once posted a question to electronics.stackexchange.com (where the "engineers" tolerate nothing outside of their understanding) about why electrolytic capacitors are rated for higher voltage as the capacitance (measured in farads (uF, pF, etc) goes down.

Not only did they not answer it, they deleted my question entirely and it had taken me a long while to write up the question and I wish I still had that question because it was interesting.

I know that it must also be infinitely more difficult when there is a language difference involved also. Hope you get things worked out.

If you get a chance, check this one out where I answered the question correctly but got down-voted and then the person tried to tell me why my working code was wrong. it was ridiculous.
