I'm probably going to be dismissed as being rude or mean or whatever, but the idea that we just "don't like praise" (and by the way it doesn't need a capital letter, capitals aren't just there to look pretty) is ridiculous. Plenty of people get positive criticism. Just below, allison/Kelsey's piece got praise as well as some criticism.
Anyway, you seem to think that the whole point of letting others read your writing isn't to see how that can help you grow as a writer but to have your ego stroked. Doesn't it occur to you that if someone criticizes your writing it's not because they've had a bad day or have some weird dislike of praise but because they genuinely find flaws with it?
Oh, and if you think this site is "harsh" I can garantee you can get far more violent criticisms of your writing than you get here. One of my college professors (who had asked to see my writing) told me, in so many words, that he didn't understand why I bothered to write. That almost put me off writing for good.
