Now I'm sure you don't mean me, here. I think if somebody was going to tag me with a label, intellectually elite would be way down the list, in fact, my phrase book wouldn't even contain intellectually elite. I'll know it's for me when you post one for the Unintelligent masses.
What I do is always read and comment on the people who have been good enough to comment on my stuff. After that, I just tend to work down the new posts, but I agree with you, in future after returning the reads that I've had, I will go to unreviewed stuff.
Your stuff is different to the norm, you have a style all of your own and I think you're just going to have to accept that most people, especially people reading you for the first time, aren't going to get it. What I suggest you do is keep writing, keep posting and just accept what you're given, using any piece of advice that you can use and binning the rest as not being right for you. Most of all, don't let it get you down.
