Not to put too fine a point on it, but no one here is obligated to comment on anyone's else's posts.
What makes commenting on your language inherently better than discussing pronunciation? This is what I mean about a degree of entitlement that I find frankly incredible. You're really in no position at all to judge what the best use of my (or anyone else's) time is.

Obviously you haven't read the article because a lot of the stuff I covered is more unconventional than normal auxlangs that are just ripoffs of Latin. I don't care whether you read it or not, I just don't think that was a nice way to put it.I didn't take a closer look at Gurcaj because I'm not interested in auxlangs, and that's my prerogative.
Again, it's only rude if you feel entitled. If someone said, "Hey, why is no one discussing the video I posted of our soccer team playing?" would it be rude of you to say "I didn't look at it because I'm not interested in soccer"? [Substitute any other leisure time activity for "soccer" if it makes the analogy easier for you to grasp.] What makes it different when a type of conlang is involved instead of a particular sports activity?
Actually, I did look at Gurcaj after you complained and, frankly, I find your choices confusing. If it's meant to be an auxlang, then why did you choose phonemes that are difficult for most people in the world to pronounce, such as [θ], [h̪͆] (actually had to look that one up, since the diacritic belongs to Extended IPA), and [x]? That just strikes me as perverse.

Who's getting "picked on"? People asked XshadowX some questions in order to better understand his conlang. He misread them as criticism and got huffy. It was an unreasonable reaction to a reasonable show of interest.
