I ignore reading Reddit comments about my blog posts as they
inevitably end up ruining my day :-)
A. write a blog post about some minor thing you just learnt
B. someone else gets something out of the post and decides to post it
C. everyone piles on *you* for being so arrogant to think that you've
come up with something amazing and Reddit-worthy that really anyone
with half a brain already knew
Anyone else had the same experience?
