Is playing poker for a living really a bad thing?

I play poker for a living,
Earning about 16-27 thousand dollars a year since 2007.
Im not living in the US and when converted to my country currency, its large enough for me to actually retire now and im only on my early 30s.
Using HUD and softwares like Leak buster in cash games at the moment.
My question is, why do a lot of people disapproved of money earned from poker?

I understand how you feel,
Let people say what they want, don't mind them
just do what you want to do. you have the money to do it.

Maybe I should get Leak Buster too.

You are doing everything right.
If you are good at what you do and able to earn money - there is no shame in it.
Tell ppl you are working in online consulting business. Thats what I do.
