You Made a Thing. They Made a Comment.

If you create at all; if you've ever been flamed at all; go read this from Wil Wheaton. Now.

The tl;dr?

"This is an important thing to keep in mind, for all creative people in the universe: the very act of creating is courageous. Making art requires empathy and a willingness to be vulnerable and naked before the world. Doing these things on the Internet means you’re exposing yourself to the very best and the very worst our species has to offer. Just remember, when someone is being a terrible monstrous awful cruel human being: you made a thing, and they made a comment."

I'm copying that to forward to my son, who gets discouraged when someone makes nasty comments on his work just for the sake of being mean. Thank you!!
