Why SF/F, Revisited

Follow-up to the previous post...

Who else has gotten that remark "You write so well, why do you wasted you time on crap like sci-fi/fantasy? Why don't you write a real novel?" (or variations thereof)?

I'm still not sure of the proper response. I'm torn between the following:
  • Kick them in the groin,
  • Give them the bird.
  • Smile and say "Thank you. I'm ignoring you now."
  • Say "Thank you for the vote of no confidence. You can go away now. I have no wish to consort with a troll."
  • Say "Cthulhu will eat your soul."
What say you out there?
