People joke about "crafter's ADD" but crafting with *real* AD[H]D is a thing (and some of the people who self-deprecatingly joke about it probably have the real deal). I blogged about it a little here: https://silverseams.com/2019/03/25/managing-a-problem-employee-me-its-me/
You ever look at joining an online community and find they have an AUP, a Code of Conduct, a FAQ, a supplement to the AUP and CoC several times longer than the CoC itself where the longest section is "'Religious' topics are forbidden" which goes into great detail, and then an application process... and think, "If they need this many rules, this isn't for me..."?
I get that CoC's are how the world works now, but reading literally 7000+ words of how to behave before I can join a group?
One of the weird things about reading long-form web comics is the sense of time. It's been just short of 4 years since Sleepless Domain started. And a bit in the strip just reminded us that only "about a week" has passed since the opening events of the comic. But the time dilation of 3 pages a week makes it feel like so much time must have passed in the story.
Why is it, on certain Reddit communities, it seems like every time I post, someone has to "correct" me. As in, they're providing supplemental information that wasn't necessary, but phrasing it as if what I said was wrong. Every dang time. And every time, I look at it and think, "This is how stupid internet arguments start." and I just leave it alone.
