I try to avoid grousing about people who rain on my parade, put down something I’m enthusiastic about, or otherwise buzzkill. I’m not sure I always manage that.
One reason to avoid bitching about buzzkill: If you then put down other people or groups for their enthusiasms, well, you come off looking like a hypocrite.
Looking like one because you are one.
I know, I know: You’re harshing my mellow, where I’m just pointing out the flaws in what you appreciate. It’s totally different.
[I was going to comment on the flood of liblog posts in Feedly this morning–more than 300, compared to the usual 110-150–but it turns out one specific blog burped up its entire history, accounting for more than half of the posts. So: Never mind.]
