    great comment on her reaction piece:

    Keep in mind that you're looking at /r/programming, which consists of... programmers. Programmers are obviously going to scoff at someone being unable to solve a common programming problem. The article was posted to /r/web_design as well, which consists of more of a mix of designers and developers. In general, there were more supportive comments there.

      That said, /r/webdev was equally as dismissive.

      And honestly, /r/web_design was... well, pretty dismissive as well. The "supportive" comments were either downvoted or not very upvoted.

        /r/webdev is typically the better community, from my experience, but both are super toxic. Which is disappointing, but not surprising. Reddit on the whole is toxic. There are, however, many non-toxic parts, (shoutouttor/nfl).

          Haha agree on the toxicity - my go-tos for most of the non-toxic stuff are /r/cfb (it's the absolute best) and then a few of the TV/movie focused ones (although as those get bigger, elements creep in).

          r/nfl fist bump

          99.9% of the other subreddits can DIAF as far as I'm concerned.
