[FoRK] The epic continues: Paul Graham's victimhood complex

I ignore reading Reddit comments about my blog posts as they  
inevitably end up ruining my day :-)

In summary:

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  
to Reddit
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?
