“The degree to which someone will shoot off their mouth on the internet is inversely proportional to the amount of actual, real experience that they have in the subject.”
This one doesn’t require much explanation. The “younger” you are (not chronologically, but experientially), the more likely you are to try to sell yourself online as some kind of authority, especially when talking to people who seriously outclass you.
The “older” folks among my 4 readers are nodding their heads. You, however, are rushing to think up a response.
Do us both a favor… drop a magnet on your lappy.
