I’d say the criticism when asking a dumb question; or better, finding a really good community.
It has happened to me before — I go on a forum or chat “open to all! Come ask any question, we’re here to help” only to find that my genuine doubts and questions weren't seen as real questions, and people weren’t trying to help, only to “get this over with asap”.
I’m very glad to have DEV.to, however: you guys are so helpful, and the tag for explain it like I’m five has seriously solved doubts that I never asked for fear of my questions being dismissed as too dumb or basic.
Thanks everyone! 😃
