      What's something that you feel is unfairly criticized?
      What are the common criticisms against it?
      Why do you feel that those are unfair?

      Also, given the nature of the question, it's likely that some people will surface opinions you might disagree with. Please remember the principle of charity when responding!

    2. Where did the trend of disabling Javascript in one's browser originate from?

      I must have missed this boat and I'm having trouble understanding why people would do this. None of my colleagues, who are involved in tech fields such as my self, have ever done this. There must...

      I must have missed this boat and I'm having trouble understanding why people would do this. None of my colleagues, who are involved in tech fields such as my self, have ever done this.

      There must be an 'origin story' along with a tradition. Isn't there?

      Is this a niche objection to Javascript? If so, what are the objections and why are so few people, as far as I can tell, not concerned at all about this?

    4. flustering quickly, often escalating to panic

      I get very confused and urgent and it can be many minutes before I understand that I'm arguing from nothing but internal stress. It's a maddening habit that everyone around me finds repulsive. I...

      I get very confused and urgent and it can be many minutes before I understand that I'm arguing from nothing but internal stress. It's a maddening habit that everyone around me finds repulsive. I have thought that it would be possible to make friends who could help to intervene when I am losing polite perspective, but I am not sure if this expectation has ever really functioned. I don't want to disavow any responsibility in telling my friends they have to jump in on my frequent malfunctions, that sounds unfair. But I'm not making much progress on getting over myself by myself. What to do.
