  • Nathan: Long story really - but in a nutshell some college-level-C++-amateurs were criticizing a professor who wrote a C++ book for his students
    October 28, 2014, 09:21:45 pm
  • Nathan: It wasn't perfect and a text book for a class isn't going to be - but the simple fact it was free and he had intentions on distributing it to other schools for free
    October 28, 2014, 09:22:31 pm
  • Nathan: It was also on github
    October 28, 2014, 09:22:35 pm
  • Nathan: But the most they could say was "this book sucks! use these other books!!!!"
    October 28, 2014, 09:22:49 pm
  • Nathan: I have several comments to this - one of them being if you make the impression that you know the subject but make no effort to contribute
    October 28, 2014, 09:23:52 pm
  • Nathan: You actually don't
    October 28, 2014, 09:23:55 pm
  • Nathan: I reported their posts
    October 28, 2014, 09:24:15 pm
  • Nathan: Then they shadowbanned me
    October 28, 2014, 09:24:22 pm
  • Nathan: I challenged one guy to post a book he wrote as he was acting like he wrote something better
    October 28, 2014, 09:25:21 pm
  • Nathan: He posted a link to his github which contained sample code
    October 28, 2014, 09:25:32 pm
  • Nathan: I facepalmed
    October 28, 2014, 09:25:39 pm
  • Nathan: I no longer visit reddit - most of the interesting places are filled with 18-somethings who feel that because they can compile code it makes them an expert
    October 28, 2014, 09:26:30 pm
  • Nathan: I'm not claiming that I'm an expert by any stretch
    October 28, 2014, 09:28:13 pm
  • Nathan: But if someone wants to create a book or community that has a mission that revolves around helping others - sign me up I'll drink that kool aid.
    October 28, 2014, 09:30:20 pm
  • Nathan: Even if the end result isn't perfect - it's still the thought that makes it awesome.
    October 28, 2014, 09:31:49 pm
  • Nathan: What he is doing and doesn't realize is that he is laying the foundation for other people to write other or better ebooks (that are free)
    October 28, 2014, 09:32:11 pm
  • Shishka: Well said, I really don't post at all. I check the front page of anything funny and that's about it. Arguing on Reddit I learned is a very bad idea..
    October 29, 2014, 09:08:39 am
  • Shishka: I couldn't imagine the coding subreddits. Everyone thinking they are smarter than everyone else, must make for some rough comment sections.
    October 29, 2014, 09:09:36 am
  • Nathan: That is actually related to my theory that self-moderated websites don't work
    October 29, 2014, 08:53:53 pm
  • Nathan: I should say don't work the way they are implemented now
