I made the front page of reddit today. It was imgur’d but a lot of redditors stuck up for me and encouraged each other to visit my page to help boost traffic.
I find myself conflicted. I wanted to go to the reddit comments and tell everyone thanks. I truly believe there are a great deal of stellar human beings in the reddit community. But there are also a small bunch of awful individuals that make it hard for me to go there.
Every time I have joined a discussion in the comments I have been attacked and insulted. There are the immature “You’re fat” comments that really don’t bother me. But then there are the true assholes that go for the jugular. At one point a group of them got my personal information and threatened me and my family.
It’s no secret that I haven’t been feeling well lately, and I just didn’t feel up to taking the bad with the good. My skin isn’t as thick as it used to be. For that, I am sorry. But I am truly grateful for all of the support I was given.
