Why Not to Post

  • This is already covered by someone else, somewhere else.
  • Someone else could probably explain it better.
  • People will know I’m not as “advanced” as I would like to appear.
  • Writing this up is hard.
  • Nobody will read this, anyway.

Why To Post

  • Even if you can find it somewhere else, how you arrived at the question and/or how you found your answer is unique.
  • You understand a thing better when you can teach it to someone else.
  • You’re always going to be less advanced than you wish you were, and someone more advanced may have something to teach you.
  • Nearly everything worthwhile is hard.
  • Actually, probably, someone probably will read it. If you’re writing this for fame and fortune, it’s time for a re-think.
