People are people. They’re gonna do what they’re gonna do.
There are always going to be people (young and old) in this world who want to malign you. There’s always going to be someone jealous of you. Someone who needs to belittle you in order to somehow “validate” themselves or their clique. Let the insecure remain that way.
You see it a lot in this hobby because of the average age of it’s participants. Not going to get into the psychology of the young adult mind, and I don’t think I really have to. We all know people, so there’s no need for an explanation at length.
Flies buzz. Fires burn. Plagues spread.
That’s what they do. Keep them at arm’s length and you’ll be fine. Don’t get suckered into dealing with them in any capacity and your life will be much more sane and stress free.
The tone of the OP’s post suggests that he, himself, has been suckered into dealing with a hater or two. It’s a dangerous trap. Even if you “win” you still end up mad and in a position to make posts like this. Or attach negative labels like “Commoner(s)” to them. Before long, you end up joining them whether you realize it or not.
