Rage attacks are rarely helpful

So, yeah, NabeWise is kind of a grody hipsterish web site. And at least one of their employees is probably pretty damn clueless.
Was their email insulting? Yeah. Disrespectful to the people who lived through or died in Katrina? Pretty much.
Did me teeing off on her like I did and then posting it here do anything to make it any better, or make the world a better place? Probably not. It made me feel better for about 15 minutes. And then it made me feel worse.
I was having a bad day and was angry at people who I can’t yell at, and people around me would be really hurt by my unloading on them, and right then this hapless hipster from New York happened to wander by, and, well, target acquired.
I should do better than this.

    Well, it made me feel good. You know, in 10 more years, even more clueless kids won’t know what Katrina was, and they’ll still be cluestrapping their bootless startups or whatever. So fuck ‘em. Getting a few arrows in their backs or clueless fronts should help them get a real understanding of startup life anyway.
