Listen…I hate to be that guy, but if you’re the kind of person who starts a sentence with “I hate to be that guy, but…” you ARE that guy.
It happens to the best of us. Sometimes it just needs to happen. Sometimes it needs to be said…but most of the time…it doesn’t.
Here’s the thing, you don’t have to be that guy. You could be helpful. If someone is making something stupid, provide constructive criticism instead of just insulting it. I know, I know. It’s crazy talk because we’re on the internet and the internet isn’t where you go to be helpful…but what if we did? Wouldn’t that be swell?
